Canada Day 2015 Maple Leaf Celebrations
13 Capital City Celebrations Across this Great Country on July 1st, 2015.
13 provinces and territories will be celebrating Canada Day across our great country on July 1st, 2015. The Capital City in each region, in many cases, throws the biggest party. So we thought we would provide a cheat sheet to the many events surrounding Canada Day Celebrations in each Capital City for each province and territory. If you are in the vicinity, get your Maple Leaf on and head down to the festivities and show off your Canadian pride. Remember, we love photos about Canada so please share them with us at #CanadaTravel on Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest.
If travel time is not on your side then make sure to head down to your local community celebrations and cheer on Canada.
