The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury was buzzing with energy on Canada Day, hosting a vibrant event at the Bradford and District Memorial Community Centre. The celebrations featured various performances, including buskers Bex in Motion and Rockabilly Joe, as well as dance routines by Elite Dance Corps. True Rodeo, a Blue Rodeo tribute band, captivated the audience on the main stage.

Amid the festivities, approximately 15,000 attendees gathered to partake in the six-hour extravaganza. Families enjoyed the kids’ zone with inflatable slides, obstacle courses, and games, while individuals indulged in non-permanent airbrush or glitter tattoos. Attendees also had the opportunity to snap photos at the chalkboard station or the photo frame, creating lasting memories of the celebration.

Meanwhile, in Ottawa, Canada Day prompted a different response as Ottawa Bylaw and Regulatory Services (BLRS) attended to over 100 service calls. The majority of the complaints, 60 in total, were related to fireworks, while 47 were due to general noise disturbances. Notably, three charges were issued for discharging fireworks in prohibited locations and one charge for noise disruption.

Ottawa residents, as reported by CTV News Ottawa, have raised concerns about noise and firework violations, signaling the need for increased vigilance and adherence to municipal bylaws. The city’s strict regulations aim to ensure public safety and peaceful coexistence during festive occasions such as Canada Day.
