Entertainment and activities | June 13, 2017
It’s not just another Canada Day and the event on Mississauga Celebration Square isn’t just any event.
This year, the Square’s free Canada Day festivities, inspired by Canada’s 150th Anniversary, focuses on celebrating what connects us as Canadians. From food and music to art and heritage, residents and visitors are invited to be a part of the experience that brings us all together.
Join Mayor Bonnie Crombie and Members of Council as they kick-off Canada Day with a special Canada 150 Parade of Nations presented by Carassauga. This is followed by an Official Ceremony which includes a reaffirmation oath which allows attendees the opportunity to re-confirm their Canadian Citizenship.
Later on, join internationally-renowned JUNO Award winner K’NAAN on the main stage while he performs his hit Wavin’ Flag and many others.
Farah Nasser, Alan Carter, Jeff McArthur and Crystal Goomansingh from Global News will host the event which includes a full day of family-friendly entertainment.
