July 1st is Canada’s birthday, and this year the country celebrates 149 years as a nation.
On this day, there is no better place to be in Canada than the capital city of Ottawa. If you’ve never been to Ottawa, it’s a beautiful city. Ruth and I both grew up in Ottawa, so we know the city well and we have spent many Canada Days downtown enjoying the festivities.
There’s something going on all day today downtown. Streets are closed off and there are happy people partying everywhere in the downtown core. In the evening, there will be a huge fireworks show at Parliament Hill. It’s really something to see!
