While the City of Vancouver continues the tradition of keeping Canada Day celebrations pretty low-key, neighbouring communities like the City of Burnaby continue to grow their Canada Day festivities.
This year, the City of Burnaby will play host to a free Canada Day concert and fireworks at the Swangard Stadium on July 1st for the third consecutive year. The event marks Canada’s 149th birthday and highlights include: top-notch entertainment; activities and exhibitors for the whole family, and spectacular fireworks for the grand finale.
“We are so pleased to offer this unique opportunity for Burnaby families to gather with friends and neighbours to celebrate Canada’s birthday in grand fashion,” says Mayor Derek Corrigan. “We know that this will once again be an evening of exceptional entertainment – all at no cost, in honour of our country’s birthday.”
2016 boasts another spectacular lineup headlined by Canadian rockers The Trews. Joining them will be country/pop singer, Madeline Merlo along with Vancouver reggae band Purple Soul.
The event will take place Friday, July 1st at Swangard Stadium located at Kingsway & Boundary Road in Burnaby. The concert is free to the public and gates open at 5:00pm with the fireworks show slated for dusk.
