Ohhhhhh it’s almost Canada Day, friends! It is one of my favourite holidays and now that I have kids of my own, I get pretty excited about sharing the traditions of the day with them! Finding a good spot to watch the parade, trying out the yummy international food booths and enjoying the entertainment at Canatara, and (someday) the music and fireworks!
