Canada’s Big Day

By Linda Tancs

Today is Canada Day, a statutory holiday commemorating the nation’s creation. Prior to nationhood, a historic meeting took place in 1864 at Charlottetown port in Prince Edward Island that led to the Canadian Confederation. This year marks the 150th anniversary of that event, and PEI is celebrating yearlong with lots of festivals. Today’s free music festival at the Charlottetown Event Grounds features Barenaked Ladies, Tegan and Sara, Classified, David Miles, Roch Voisine, George Canyon and DRUM! Gates open at 12:00 p.m. Performers are on stage from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
