This year’s Canada Day festivities at Oakville’s Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park will offer something for the whole family.

The fun holiday event is free with family activities and the food trucks set to open at 6 pm and then all topped off with the fireworks at 10 pm (weather permitting).

Residents are being encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair and get to the park early for the best view of the fireworks.

As well, don’t forget to check off this location in the Town’s Celebrate Summer Scavenger Hunt.

Residents can also take a picture with one of the At Home in Bronte Muskoka Chairs (located at 2340 Ontario Street) as part of the Town’s tour to learn more about Oakville’s history, impressive public art, gardens, and more.

Visit at least five of the eight Celebrate Summer Scavenger Hunt (PDF) locations for a chance to win a free Family Activity Pass.

For those looking to get a ride to the event and avoid traffic, Oakville Transit will have a shuttle running from Bronte GO Station.

Care-A-Van customers are reminded they need to pre-book their trips to and from the fireworks.
