Canada Day is right around the corner and we are all ready to relax a bit. What do you have planned to celebrate Canada Day This Year?
It’s been an unprecedented year, and more than ever, Canada Day will bring Canadians together, but now virtually. While parades and big parties have been cancelled, you can still find amazing events online and get connected with family and friends.

BC has prepared a lot of virtual events to toast this important holiday and, we at Macdonald Realty have prepared this list of virtual family-friendly events to participate and enjoy the Canada Day!

Delta is inviting residents to host their own physically distanced block parties this year on front lawns and balconies. Neighbourhoods interested in hosting a block party can check with the city to see about getting a #WeLoveDelta Block Box or Mini Box, with all the stuff you need to set up a block party. Visit Delta’s website and get your Canada Day party ready to go!
Don’t miss the chance to watch streamed content from Science World, the Greater Vancouver Zoo, the Fraser Valley Regional Library and the Langley Centennial Museum!

Several rooftop performances are scheduled to take place in Ambleside, Dundarave and the Horseshoe Bay area for July 1 and you’ll be able to hear the bands from your home though you won’t be able to see them. (Residents are asked not to congregate on the streets.) At 7 p.m., residents are invited to stand in their yards or balconies to join a community-wide singalong of O Canada, after cheering healthcare workers.
After kids bedtime, because you also deserve to celebrate, join White Rock’s events. They will be a live-streamed concert by Ludic from Blue Front Studios, and a comedy set by John Cullen and much more. The event will be live-streamed on YouTube or Facebook, beginning at 7 p.m.
