How to celebrate Canada Day on the North Shore

Canada Day is fast approaching, and there are many ways that you can celebrate this important occasion on the North Shore. Whether you choose to go somewhere locally in North Vancouver or West Vancouver to celebrate or enjoy the festivities from your home, you’ll find no shortage of ways to mark this year’s Canada Day.

Watch the Canada Day Virtual Event

The outbreak of COVID-19 has still limited many public gatherings, but you can still get in on the action by watching the North Shore’s Virtual Canada Day Celebration. Music and other live performances will be featured for this event, and it will also include a fundraiser if you care to donate.

Host an Outdoor Cookout

You can gather some family members and perhaps a few special friends for an outdoor cookout at your place this Canada Day. It is always fun to BBQ some steaks or hotdogs on the grill, or you could prepare meals using your outdoor kitchen if you have one. Hosting an outdoor cookout will be an especially good idea if the weather is hot in your neighbourhood this Canada Day.

Go Shopping

Treating yourself to some retail therapy can be another excellent way to enjoy Canada Day. Lynn Valley Centre is one of the premier local shopping centres where you can buy clothes, housewares and delicious food from many of the shops.

Take a Hike

Canada Day also offers the perfect opportunity to go hiking in some of the area’s best wilderness spots.

Lighthouse Park is named for its iconic lighthouse that overlooks the shore and features lush forestry with giant trees that have been standing for centuries.

The Grouse Grind is one of North Vancouver’s most popular trails. Other great places to hike in the area include Mosquito Creek and Lynn Headwaters Regional Park.

You can make this Canada Day an even more exciting occasion by finding the best way to celebrate that’s right for you. Lynn Valley Centre will be open, and you can learn more about what’s available at the centre’s stores by visiting
