Everyone’s Canadian on Canada Day! And what better way to celebrate Canada’s birthday than at the beach? On July 1, from West Beach to East Beach, and all day long, White Rock’s waterfront will be alive with entertainers, live music, vendors, kids activities, food trucks and fireworks! Presented by Amica White Rock, at Totem Park, Canada Day by the Bay kicks off at 10am and wraps up with a spectacular fireworks show over the bay at 10:15pm.
With all the amazing activities happening up and down the beach, you’re going to need a way to get around! It’s a good thing that there’s a FREE Shuttle and Trolley that will take you all over White Rock, so you won’t miss a thing!
