Come out and Celebrate Canada 150 with us!

 

As the co-chair of Canada Day Committee, I would like to invite all of you to come out and celebrate Canada 150 with us! This year we have an exciting entertainment lineup at Milne Dam Conservation Park starting with the People’s parade. As we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, you will enjoy some of Canada’s best entertainment, including Julia Gartha, the winner of Star Search Markham, Splash’N Boots and our headliner Francesco Yates. You won’t want to miss the amazing firework at night. So come out with your family, friends and neighbours to celebrate Canada 150 and to celebrate your pride as Canadians!

Markham’s Canada 150 sign is unveiled at the Markham Civic Centre on the afternoon of June 21st. It will be on-site during Markham’s Canada Day celebrations at Milne Park. #Markham150

Streetscape Program

Thanks to our Parks Staff, we are currently enhancing the City’s Streetscape Program that has been designed to be inclusive of all Ward residents for their enjoyment. The City will be deploying large self watering planters at select, high impact intersections, throughout your Ward. The new planting enhancement will now provide floral displays at many street intersections City wide rather than being limited to the two Main Streets. This new program will allow all Ward residents to experience our amplified Streetscape beautification as we proudly celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday.

 

Be in the Spotlight for Markham’s Canada 150 Celebrations

As the co-chair of Canada Day Committee for the City of Markham, I would like to encourage you all to submit your online audition to Star Search Markham for a chance to take centre stage at the City’s Canada Day Celebrations on July 1.

Star Search Markham is a great Canada 150 initiative that allows community members to celebrate their neighbours, and show their local and national pride while embracing the arts. The City of Markham is the nation’s most diverse City, and the talent that will be revealed through this competition is expected to be just as diverse.

This exciting opportunity is open to applicants of all ages, backgrounds and abilities who were born in the City of Markham, or who live, work, go to school, own a business or are affiliated with an arts organization in Markham.

The winner of the competition will be in the spotlight at the City’s largest Canada Day event yet – an annual celebration that draws thousands of attendees throughout the day from across the Greater Toronto Area. Markham’s big star will also take home a $1,500 cash prize.

This will be a great experience and is a fun way to celebrate local talent during Canada’s big year!
