Happy 150th birthday Canada!
Canada celebrated its 150th birthday on the 1st of July with country-wide festivals, fireworks, events, and exhibitions.
The second largest celebration in Canada was held in Vancouver at Canada Place, with music, food, parades, and fireworks. Vancouver's official celebration, named "Canada 150+," recognized the much longer history of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations peoples of the area. Proud Canadians turned out in red and white attire and Canadian flags were in abundance throughout Vancouver during the celebration.
