We may not be able to gather in person this year for Canada Day, but we can still add some local flavour to the national celebration on July 1, 2020. The City of Port Moody invites you to dress up in red and white and enjoy a variety of online Canada Day festivities, including performances by local musicians, a special story time presented by the Port Moody Public Library, and a “Canada 153” workout led by some of your favourite City fitness instructors.
Visit portmoody.ca/canadaday any time after 10am on July 1, 2020 and click on the links to play the following videos:
Canada Day Greetings and Maple Leaf Medley
Port Moody’s Mayor and Council, along with Port Moody-Coquitlam MP Nelly Shin and Port Moody-Coquitlam MLA Rick Glumac, will offer Canada Day greetings. We’ll also unveil a community art project, Maple Leaf Medley, that was created using photos submitted by members of the public. We asked you to send us still life photos of red or white objects – find out how Resident Artitst Sara Graham combined them to create a special Canada Day image.
Library story time
The Port Moody Public Library invites you to join Corene, Fiona, and Sadie online for a Canada Day story time.
