While making my way around the region with the Canada Day series, I am happy to include Whistler’s Canada Day event. Whistler is a part of the “604” after all and they have a great lineup of activities and entertainment to compliment their Canada Day festivities this year.
The resort municipality of Whistler
July 1st (9:00am – 11:00pm) through July 4th, 2010
The parade‘s theme is â€œWhistler Spirit â€“ Letâ€™s Hear It! Celebrating our Arts, Culture, and Heritage” and will begin at 12:00pm at the Whistler Public Library, winding along the Village Stroll, ending at Mountain Square. The parade includes roving street entertainment, 2010 Olympians and Paralympians, a 60-piece marching band and award for the most sustainable float.
The festivities continue Friday to Sunday with an outdoor concert series (3:00pm – 5:00pm Friday July 2nd) and the BC Bike Race (10:00am Saturday July 3rd). The outdoor concert series continues (3:00pm – 5:00pm Saturday July 3rd) with Delhi 2 Dublin and the Whistler Dragon Boat Festival at Rainbow Park (9:00am – 5:00pm Saturday July 3rd).
