Canada Day is July 1st, so dress up in your best red and white, unfurl the mighty maple leaf flag and show you’re proud to be Canadian! This is traditionally a day for barbecues, pool parties, trips to the beach and other fun activities. Here are a few more inspired ideas so you can celebrate your mid-week break without breaking the bank.

  • Go camping. The July 1st holiday is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether you really want to “rough it” or prefer all the fancy gear and gadgets that make camping more comfortable, visit Flyerland.ca for outstanding deals at Canadian Tire and Bass Pro Shops.
  • Make your getaway. If you can stretch the one-day holiday into a four-day weekend, get out of town! Check the travel section of Flyerland.ca for incredible savings on vacation homes, hotels resorts, rental cars and more.
  • Organize a street party. Make this Canada Day a celebration to remember by planning a street party, complete with music, lots of good food, fun games and prizes. Visit the Zellers or Wal-mart for cool Canada themed items.
  • Fun for the whole family. Treat the gang to an awesome day at a favourite local attraction like Ontario Place or Wonderland, or maybe a day trip to Banff or Whistler. Find all the best discount offers on Flyerland.ca. Or attend one of the many special Canada Day celebration events from coast to coast.
  • Plan a sports day. Get together with family and friends and organize a baseball, soccer or golf tournament—just choose your favourite sport. End the day with a barbecue and be sure to have Canada Day prizes (which you can pick up from the Dollar Store) for the winners.
  • Let the sparks fly! Fireworks lighting up the evening sky make a fantastic finale to a brilliant Canada Day. Attend a local event, or organize a display on your street with friends and neighbours. Just remember, safety first—be sure to have a first aid kit and fire extinguishers on hand, just in case.
  • Finish household chores. If you can’t turn the mid-week holiday into an extra long weekend, take advantage of the day off to get work done around the house. From gardening and mowing the lawn, to repairing the deck or cleaning out the garage, finish these jobs now so you can relax and enjoy your weekend.
