Canada Day in Hatley Village

If you live in North America, then you know your country's birthday celebrations take place in early July. In Canada, it's July 1st. All over the country, villages, towns and cities put on some kind of special event. In Hatley Village this year they put on their 100th consecutive parade and fireworks display. Literally the money that is collected from those who donate to see the morning parade, is all blown up later that night on a big noise and light show in the skies. Dogs, babies and grannies for miles around cower under their beds until the racket settles down and another year of bucolic peace takes over.
