O Canada, it’s that time of year again!
Celebrating Canada Day has always been one of our top priorities every season- I mean we have a reputation to uphold since we are CANADA’S Wonderland right?
So what are we doing in honour of our nation’s birthday you may ask?
Well for starters one day is simply not enough. I mean Canada is 151 now. That means a century and a half of culture, entertainment, history and of course cuisine. Which has lead us to bring a full month’s worth of celebrations back to the park!
This epic event runs from June 30 to July 31 and will feature amazing Canadian-themed entertainment, shows and food, guaranteed to delight guests of all ages.
And best of all, the Celebration Canada shows and entertainment are FREE with your park admission.
