While the neighbouring community of Burnaby is hosting their annual Canada Day celebration at Swangard Stadium, this year will be Coquitlam’s eighth Canada Day celebration and more than 60,000 people will gather in Town Centre Park on July 1st for ‘Coquitlam Celebrates Canada Day’.
The Canada Day celebration in Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park is a free community festival featuring live music and entertainment, food, beverages, family activities and fireworks.
As part of the Coquitlam 125 anniversary celebrations, the 2016 event will recognize the City’s past, present and future with a new site configuration and special activities.
Photo opportunities abound at this colourful event, from the red and white face paint and clothing, to the live performances on three stages, to the spectacular fireworks display over Lafarge Lake.
The free Canada Day Celebration is an all day event culminating with fireworks at 10 p.m.
Limited parking is available on site and event-goers are encouraged to walk, bike, carpool or use transit or the free shuttle. A free shuttle bus will run from 11:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. between the site and Gleneagle Secondary (1195 Lansdowne Dr.) and a free bicycle valet service will be available.
Buses that stop within a block or two of the site include the 97 B-Line, 179, C27 and C28.
