Canada Day is right around the corner, coming up this Sunday. It’ll be a nice day to celebrate I hope (it’s supposed to be hot). A time for parades, cool drinks, hot dogs around a fire with family and friends, and then gathering with the community to watch fireworks. It’s always a grand night.
How does one celebrate Canada?
Well, first off you need to dress the part.
Moose, geese, maple leaves, flags and more.
The colours red and white are found galore.
As one and all show their heart.
Find a parade, a band or two.
Floats, and horses, a bikes a plenty
Honking, shouting, beeps and roars
Follow the flag to the community centre.
See cars, and bouncy castles,
Popcorn and cupcakes,
Music and dance
Face-painting, and crafts.
Sparklers, and coloured lights
Games of chase, dogs bark
Balls, bikes, Smoke starts to rise
Then boom and spark, Flash and sizzle.
