As the May Long Weekend arrives it’s time to think ahead and plan out our summer activities, especially what we’ll be doing on the next long weekend, Canada Day. Surrey’s Canada Day celebration returns to the Cloverdale Millenium Amphitheatre for a full day of free family activities and a great Canadian concert line-up on Monday, July 1, 2013..
