The summer has kicked off, which means that Canada Day Weekend is here. Canada is on the verge of celebrating its 149th Birthday and it doesn’t look a day over 20! If you live in Toronto then the weather will be great for Canada Day Weekend which is why we’re highlighting some community events for the weekend. Bring the family out and have a great time at any of these five events.
Toronto Ribfest kicks off this weekend in the west end. For all of the HealthMax Physiotherapy followers who live in Etobicoke, you may want to visit Centennial Park this weekend. Presented by Rotary Etobicoke, Toronto Ribfest will feature some awesome food, events, and a ribs competition that will be judged by celebrities. While these celebrities are a surprise, the ribs and cornbread make this the perfect activity for a family looking for food and sunshine.
Redpath Waterfront Festival
If you have a keen interest in ships and boats, then the Redpath Waterfront Festival is the place to be this weekend. The Royal Canadian Navy will also be making an appearance at the Waterfront Festival making this a fun event filled with food, tall ships, shops and several ship deck tours. If that isn’t enough incentives to attend, the Argos Cheerleaders will participate in the obstacle course.
The 157th Queen’s Plate Race kicks off this Sunday at the Woodbine Racetrack and Entertainment Centre. For those of you who are unaware of this event, it is a horse racing event which commemorates the Queen. This year, the event has a twist as Canadian bands Hedley, Matthew Good and The Strumbella’s will all be performing on stages on the track. Tickets for this event start at $15.
Canada Day Picnic at Woodbine Park
8 Bands will hit the stage at Woodbine Park tomorrow to pay tribute to musical greats like Bon Jovi, Bob Marley and Aerosmith. Hosted by Q107, this free event will take place in the popular beaches neighbourhood. To finish off the spectacular festival, fireworks will begin at 10pm and there’s no better way to celebrate Canada Day other than fireworks at a music festival!
Downsview Park Fireworks
If you prefer a quieter setting as opposed to the Woodbine Park Picnic then we suggest the Downsview Park Fireworks, tomorrow night. The annual fireworks display will start at 10pm tomorrow night and there will be plenty of food and vendors in the park, making it ideal for the family.
