Canada Day Fireworks in New Hamburg, Cambridge and Guelph

Canada Day FireworksCanada Day is one of my favorite holidays. It’s the kickoff for summer, a celebration of sun, barbecues, beaches and beers to come. Canada Day is simple. It’s relaxing. It’s the apex, the pinnacle, the turn around point and the top of the bell curve of our year. It’s the top of the roller coaster. We’ve been pulled to the top. It’s time to let go. It’s been a long time coming, but here it is.

Over the next few days, 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo will be dedicating our daily post to this great Canadian holiday. Let’s start with our neighbouring cities and towns.
