Entertainment and activities | June 17, 2019

How often do you go to 152nd birthday celebrations? How about when you’re the one getting the gifts? Well that’s what you’re invited to this Canada Day at Mississauga Celebration Square.

Platinum-selling, award-winning, recording artists, Marianas Trench are headlining the mega event on the main stage.

If the hot sun doesn’t keep the stage and the anticipated 100,000 guests warm, music by Logan StaatsLeaving Thomas and Sickick definitely will.

No Canada Day celebration would be complete without the opportunity to remember what it means to be Canadian. The official ceremony will put guests in that proud-to-be-Canadian state of mind as Mayor Bonnie Crombie and Members of Council will lead a reaffirmation oath encouraging attendees to re-confirm their Canadian Citizenship.

Don’t forget your towel for your chance to make an afternoon splash in the fountain sponsored by Alectra. When the sun goes down, the lights get brighter. The celebration of the summer is punctuated with a spectacular fireworks finale at 10:05 p.m. presented by Tim Hortons.

Afternoon hosts, Global News’ Anthony Farnell and Farah Nasser and evening hosts, Antony Robart and ET Canada’s Sangita Patel will host the event which includes a full day of family-friendly entertainment.

Come for the food, stay for the entertainment, leave with the best Canada Day memories ever.
