As part of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, the City of Westmount invites Westmount to its biggest Canada Day event ever—Saturday, July 1 – right in our back yard!
The celebration of being Canadian will begin at 11 a.m. with a Canadian Citizenship Ceremony, that will be held on the roof of the Westmount Recreation Centre, where 40 new Canadians will be welcomed into the country and into the community. MLA Jacques Chagnon is one of the dignitaries who will attend the moving event that is open to the community.
This is the first Citizenship Ceremony sponsored by the City of Westmount. The Rotary Club of Westmount sponsored a Citizenship Ceremony in the past at Victoria Hall.
The celebration fun begins at 12:30 p.m. with a BBQ lunch... hamburgers, hot-dogs and beverages …hosted by the Westmount YMCA Teen Zone at the Westmount Recreation Centre.
At 2 p.m. the annual Splash Bash begins at the Westmount Pool with games and prizes and cool summer tunes with the Beat 92.5. Singer Barbara Lewis, who recently presented a concert at Victoria Hall , will continue with her tribute repertoire of songs written exclusively by Canadians.
