This is Canada's 150th birthday...on July 1st, Canada Day.
Across Canada, there have been events and celebrations leading up to this date...and more continuing afterwards...the total celebratory timeline adding up to 150 days.
Salt Spring Island has been showcasing many events, beginning in April. Right around and including July 1st, there are myriad exciting and heart-warming celebrations. Check the Chamber's saltspring tourism site for dates/times.
One initiative: encouraging gardeners to plant flower beds, pots, and baskets with red and white flowers.
As soon as dark enough (longest day of the year on June 21, with dusk now lasting till 10:30 p.m.), there will be fireworks in Ganges Village...see you there!
Happy Birthday, Canada!
