Canada Day 2015 - Top 4 places you need to be this year

There's lots of excitement in store for this year's Canada Day Celebration - be sure not to miss out on your chance to be apart of the festivities.

The time has almost arrived. In less than a week from now hundreds of thousands of people clad in their best red and white apparel will begin flooding downtown streets and rural backroads in celebration of Canada's 148th year as a unified Country. Each year the arrival of this day warrants massive revelry filled to the brim with carnivals, concerts, parades, races and of course fireworks.

The massive parties that take place on this day keep getting more and more extravagant as we approach nearly a century and a half of solidarity as a nation; and this year is no exception. With warm weather forecasted for next week, it's no doubt that people will be eager to put on their best party hats and sprint full torque out to the nearest venue for a day of street dancing and rubber duck racing. Be certain to look out for the events happening nearby so you don't miss out on any of the excitement this Canada Day 2015.
