Canada Day - July 1st

On Wednesday we celebrated Canada's birthday. Abbotsford had a parade down our main street, South Fraserway, and fireworks at our Exhibition park. We watched the fireworks from our back patio as we live right near the park.

We went to the parade, our middle school (Mennonite Educational Institute) marching band was marching. Unfortunately, my daughter was in the last row on the opposite side of where I was sitting so I couldn't get a picture of her, but she was there!

It felt like the whole community was out. The sun was shining bright and the street was crowded with people. Some of the floats were pretty cool. I really liked this Safari one.

And lots of kids were riding their bikes in the parade.

There were quite a few car collectors driving there vintage cars too.

All in all, a great day to celebrate Canada's birthday.
