From coast to coast, Canada celebrates the anniversary of the British North America Act (now called the Constitution Act), which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire. From parades to fireworks to cake-cutting ceremonies, each Canada town embraces their own tradition for celebrating the holiday.
One of my favorite traditions of Canada Day in Gibsons is the annual Bag o’ Books Sale, hosted by the Gibsons Public Art Gallery (GPAG). For 10 dollars, browsers received a canvas tote with a screen print of our lovely Molly’s Reach restaurant. After which, we could fill the bag with as many books as we wanted or could fit into it. From gardening to cookbooks to murder mysteries to picture history of Canada, there were books for every taste!
What a beautiful way to spend the holiday!
