img_7592.jpgWe tried something new this year, avoiding the crowds rather than seeking them out.  Still celebrating Canada Day in public, but going to the smaller venue at Olympic Plaza rather than the huge one at Prince’s Island.  It was just perfect for our energy level and still every bit as celebratory.  Olympic Plaza will be packed later this evening as this year’s fireworks take place over City Hall (right next door) but we’re already at home going to bed.

They had a great little kids’ area set up with cars and crafts and bubbles and balls, one hotdog stand, and a couple of cafes with ice cream to end the evening.
