Edmonton Canada Day celebrations 2014
Canada Day is a day where we all get together to celebrate our great country and honor those who have made sacrifices to allow us to be able to call this great place home.
Canada Day takes place each year on July 1 as a way to celebrate the day Canada was officially declared its own kingdom. Canada was created by combining three colonies and having the residents of each colony come together under one government.
There are a variety of Edmonton Canada Day celebrations 2014, including parades, fireworks, discounts on admission to activities, cookouts, concerts and so much more. Whether you’re spending the day taking a look at your next new car, with family cooking out on the patio or in downtown Edmonton, we know we value the time we get to spend together with our families, and with our broader Canada family. Canadians all over the world celebrate Canada Day, and in Edmonton, we have some of the best celebrations.
One way to spend 2014 Canada Day with your family is at the Edmonton Zoo! In addition to celebrating Canada Day, this year marks the Zoo’s 55th birthday. With regular admission, zoo-goers can experience a variety of activities and surprises the Zoo staff have planned throughout the day in addition to seeing the already wonderful variety of animals. You’ll find animal enrichment activities, geographic giant floor map games, crafts cupakes and more.
There is also the Canada Day Road Race 2014, which is a run/walk of either 2.5K, 5K or 15K that raises money for cancer in Alberta.
In addition to regular area attractions being open for business, there will be a variety of celebrations, activities, music and more going on throughout the city of Edmonton, as well as a firework show later on that night.
Celebrating Canada Day at Elk Island National Park is another option for families that are looking for a little fun and outdoor excitement.
