One of Canada’s best cities is celebrating Canada Day in style.

Montreal has a full gamut of activities scheduled for July 1 and it’s the perfect long weekend destination to celebrate everything Canuck.

The locations for Montreal’s Canada Day events include:

Clock Tower Quay, Promenade du Vieux-Port and park at the Bonsecours basin.

Here’s the line-up:

From 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. 25 new Canadian families will be sworn in, finalizing their citizenship. This will be followed by a parade featuring the military band from the Canadian Armed Forces and be highlighted by the raising of the flag and the national anthem.

Is there anything better than having cake for dessert? How about having it for lunch? At 12 p.m., the traditional serving of the Canada Cake will begin and continue until all 2000 slices have been consumed.

From 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. cannons will be fired off to mark the day of celebration. It’s described as one of the best photo opps of the year.

There is also a picnic area that is available as well as an inflatable game village where games for kids will be overseen by a safety committee. These include a Princess Palace, an obstacle course, as well as various sliding and climbing set-ups. There will also be a variety of entertainers and make-up workshops available for kids.
