1// At The Parliament Hill, Ottawa
Again we are not biased just because we are in Ottawa, but what better place to watch the big show than in the nation’s capital?
You can definitely watch the fireworks almost all around Ottawa, but most of the major activities will be happening in the downtown core right at the parliament hill!
And the best sport to watch the fireworks in Ottawa except for the Hill is:

I love Banff! I went to visit with my family last year and fell in love with it! A post will be up soon about it!
Celebrating Canada Day in Banff would be totally amazing! From their official website:
The natural beauty, heritage, and culture of Banff and Lake Louise make for a fantastic setting to experience Canada Day on July 1.
There is no better way to celebrate than being among the mountains and lakes that have defined images of Canada around the world.
