Toronto is celebrating Canada's 144th Birthday on Friday July 1st at Mel Lastman Square. 2011 Canada Day is anticipated to be the biggest yet. The city will host ongoing festivities throughout the day, but the biggest events will occur between 8 PM and 10:30 PM. The entertainment events will begin at 8 PM with a concert from Canadian native Ray Robinson. He will begin with the Canadian National anthem followed by R&B, soul, and gospel music. Robinson has built a strong reputation as an artist throughout Canada. He has won multiple awards and has been acknowledged for his impressive solo performances as well as his collaborations with various artist. Then, at 9:15, the Toronto based band, the King Sunshine will perform a short concert. This nine man band combines a variety of instruments including a keyboard, percussion, bass and guitar to bring an eruptive sound to the audience. They have recorded two full length albums and produced numerous singles and are most well known in Canada for performing in the the sold out Montreal International Jazz Festival.
Canada Day would not be complete with out a fireworks show. The festivals' fireworks will begin after the entertainment portion of the festival is over, roughly around 10:15 PM. Toronto is Canada's largest city in Canada and there are expected to be over 4,000 people at the event so we suggest that you plan ahead.
