Durham Region planning virtual celebration for Canada Day

Durham Region is planning a virtual celebration to mark Canada Day this year.

Dubbed ‘Canada Day the Durham Way,’ this first-of-its-kind event will feature an exciting lineup of local performers and family friendly entertainment including:

– Juno award winner Jack De Keyser;

– The President’s Choice SuperDogs animal trick show;

– Three-time Juno award nominees Sultans of String;

– Country artist Leah Daniels;

– Children’s entertainer Jungle Jack;

– Live animal features from Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue;

– Steel pannist Aaron Roberts; and,

– Doug the Great, a stilt-walker that holds a world record.

The livestream will also feature shout-outs from local celebrities and representation from each municipality in Durham Region – celebrating the region’s diversity and heritage.

“Hosted in collaboration between the Region of Durham and all eight local area municipalities, Canada Day the Durham Way will be a way for residents to celebrate the region’s unique attractions, see familiar faces and stay connected – while staying physically distant,” reads a media release.

“The virtual event will be a celebration of our multicultural landscape and cultures; exciting performers; one-of-a-kind children’s activities; and musical talent.”

The event will be broadcast through Durham Tourism on Facebook Live and on Rogers TV Durham from 2 to 5 p.m. on July 1.
