The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to invite residents to the annual Canada Day celebrations, which will take place on Saturday, July 1, starting at 2 p.m. at Alexandre-Bourgeau Park and at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre.

“There will be plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy with friends and family. This is a celebration for all to share,” states Mayor Trudeau.

The annual citizenship ceremony will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. at Stewart Hall. Following the ceremony, everyone is invited to take part in guided tours of Geopoetics, special exhibitions celebrating the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, in Stewart Park and the Art Gallery.

Starting at 2 p.m. there will be volleyball, inflatable structures, ziplining, obstacle courses, magic workshops, balloon sculptures, face painting, glitter tattoos, and paddle boarding at Alexandre-Bourgeau Park. A hula-hoop workshop is planned for 3:15 p.m., followed by a Zumba class for everyone and a parade in Pointe-Claire Village. Young artists are also invited to take part in a graffiti activity starting at 6 p.m. There will also be musical acts and performances on stage in the park starting at 2 p.m.

At 9 p.m. the national anthem will be sung and lanterns will be lit, followed by the traditional fireworks display around 10:10 p.m. Lanterns will also be lit at the same time in Stewart Park for those participating in the guided tour of the Geopoetics exhibitions.

Participants are invited to bring their chairs and reusable bottles which they can fill at the water station.

In case of rain, the event will be postponed to July 2, with the exception of certain activities. All the details are in the flyer for the event.

“Join us as we celebrate Canada Day and the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation on Saturday, July 1, starting at 2 p.m.,” says Mayor Trudeau.
