COOL! It’s Canada Day (in photos)



A tad on the cool side for Canada’s 148th birthday celebrations in Sault Ste. Marie but national pride was abundant on the waterfront regardless.


Temperatures struggled to reach 14c at the Sault Airport but it certainly wasn’t the coolest July 1st on record, that happened in 1965 with a cool low temperature of 4.4c  The hottest recorded temperature on this date occurred the following year with a scorching 33.9c reached.


I’ll take the cool.

Thousands attended the annual Canada Day celebrations at Bondar Pavilion. Live entertainment all day long plus several activities for the kids.

And who can say no to a Birthday cupcake? Plenty of those were handed out plus other treats were available for the hungry crowd.

The celebrations continue to dusk capped off with the traditional Canada Day fireworks at 10pm.
