July in Vancouver presents an completely unique set of activities and events as free outdoor movies, dancing, summer theatre, and the world’s largest offshore fireworks competition begins. To start the month, we have Canada Day celebrations (Miss604 is proud to sponsor Surrey Canada Day) followed by music festivals, food festivals, and the Surrey Fusion Festival which combines the two.
