Surrey Canada Day, one of Western Canada’s largest Canada Day celebrations, returns to Cloverdale to the newly and honourably re-named Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre for a full day of family fun on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. There, on the corner of 176th Street and 64th Avenue, you can enjoy entertainment and activities from 10:00am until 10:30pm, with a fireworks show to cap off the day.
