On July 1st each year there are Canada Day festivities throughout the Lower Mainland including at Waterfront Park near Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.
Prior to the celebrations at Waterfront Park, North Vancouver also has a parade which takes place from 10:00 am until noon.
The parade goes along 13th Street from Grand Boulevard before heading down 17th Street via Lonsdale Avenue to Mahon Park. It’s a small community-style parade, but lots of fun, especially for young children.
By the time the parade finishes it’s time to head to Waterfront Park for all the afternoon celebrations, as mentioned above.
