Happy 147th birthday Canada...from all of us at The Bettina Reid Group.

If you are looking for something fun to do, one of the largest Canada Day celebrations across Canada happens right here in Cloverdale at the Bill Reid Millenium Amphitheatre (formerly known as the Cloverdale Millenium Amphitheatre) located between 64th and 60th avenue on 176th Street. This is expected to be the largest celebration for all of Western Canada.

The greatest part is that it is FREE for everyone with lots of fun for the whole family. From amusement rides, to live entertainment and local vendors. The Canada Day fun begins at 10am and ends with a magnificent fireworks display at 10:15pm. Even though there is a lot of parking available they highly recommend that you walk or at least carpool as there over 100,000 people expected to attend.

For more details on the day's entertainment line up visit the city of Surrey's website at the following link:

Langley will also be holding another exciting although not as large celebration. Their events actually started this past weekend and run until tomorrow. But the official Canada Day celebrations start at 11am tomorrow and also end with fireworks at 10pm. The event is located at the Willoughby Community Park at 7888 200th St. Even though it is not as big as the Cloverdale celebrations, Langley's Canada Day event presented by Langley's International Festival still expects to see 10's of thousands of people.

Our family has been to both celebrations most years and now that our girls are older this will be the 1st year we will likely not attend with them working. But each year they always looked forward to the artists preformances on stage and the delicous food truck eats at both locations.

If you are venturing into Vancouver Canada place will also be hosting an event that starts at 10am. If you are at Canada Place around 11am 60 people from 36 countries will have the honour of becoming Canadian citizens. That would be a pretty neat site to see. Reminding us Canadians of how proud we should be to be CANADIANS!

Granville Island always throws a fun event too from 8am until midnight.

If you are in Vancouver for the end of the day Coal Harbour or West Vancouver are great spots to watch the fireworks displays.

Happy Canada to all, hope everyone gets to enjoy part or all of it with friends and family!
