Canada Day, celebrated on July 1, commemorates the date in 1867 when three Canadian provinces were united into a single country. This marked the beginning of the nation’s journey toward independence from Great Britain. Originally called Dominion Day, In 1982 the country declared the date a holiday and renamed it Canada Day. Where better to spend the holiday this year than with your friends at Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resorts?
Several of our Canadian parks host a fun, family friendly Canada Day event – here’s a look at what they have planned for 2014.
In Kingston, Nova Scotia, take a trip “Around the World” over the long weekend of June 27-July 1. Each day features a new destination – from an Irish Clover Hunt, African Relay Race and Greek Statues to Kangaroo Races, Brazilian Soccer and a Rio Carnival Dance.
