Born and raised in Surrey, and having been the first blogger to ever write about my beloved hometown (back in 2004), I am proud to once again sponsor the FREE Surrey Canada Day. Happening on July 1st at the Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre (176 Street and 64th Avenue) in Cloverdale, festivities will kick off at 10:00am and they won’t stop until the fireworks light up the night sky at 10:15pm.
