From 2008 Canada Day:
This Canada Day (Tuesday, July 1, 2008) in Mississauga means fireworks and a huge concert at Port Credit Memorial Park (see Waterfront festival blog post for map -- it's the same location).

Here's a picture I took from Memorial Park, looking across the Credit River, south to the Port Credit lighthouse:

And I posted more pictures on July 1 here!

The Canada Day celebrations are billed as Paint the Town Red, and the fun starts at noon a few blocks east of the park on Lakeshore and Wenonah, with Mayor McCallion making the first cut of a giant cake. Fireworks usually start at dusk, and will be at the park. (See update for times, etc on the more pictures link)

See the Paint the Town Red site for all the details, and full concert listings. It's gonna be HUGE!

Now these sort of fun things go on all summer long down here in Port Credit. And I promise to stop going on and on about them all if you'll just pop over to the Port Credit BIA site, and either bookmark it or sign up for their email updates. Incidentally, the BIA offices are actually IN the lighthouse in the photo!

But wait: There are more fireworks in Mississauga on Canada Day!
