Anyone have any special plans? Not this year :( we will be around home for the weekend
Any traditions?I have gone to Dauphin Country Fest every year except 1 since the time I was 12 years old. This year I'm going to sit with Arthur at home, humming Luke Bryan songs and crying :P
Do you wear red and white?I usually wear something white, or red... I'm not wild enough to double up!
Do you see fireworks?Usually at the festival, but this year we may watch from our house the little 5 min. show they do in town... Last year we were under a burn ban because of the forest fires, so it's a hit and miss event in the area.

Anyone have any special plans? It's a busy weekend for us! Friday night we have my little cousin's graduation party, Saturday is my family reunion, Sunday is Sophia's birthday party, and Monday we'll go to the Canada events in the city, and possibly stay for the fireworks.
Any traditions? Not really, we don't do the same thing each year but we always do something.
Do you wear red and white? Usually.
Do you see fireworks? It realy depends on the kids moods that evening.

Anyone have any special plans? Every year we go to the neighbours house for a swim and BBQ. We will do the local bike parade first and then go to the neighbours. I doubt we will go to the fireworks because DH actually has a conference call with Taiwan at 9PM

Any traditions? Well it is also my birthday on July 1 so we try to do a bit of birthday stuff. Waffles with strawberries and whip cream for breakfast. Cake after fireworks (except we aren't going to the fireworks this year).

Do you wear red and white? Yes. We buy our Canada Day shirts every year.

Do you see fireworks? Sometimes.

Anyone have any special plans? Going to a Canada Day party on the 1st, the rest of the weekend will be spent moving. The girls want to take some flowers to my Grandma's gravesite since the 1st was also her birthday so I think we're going to plan that in as well.
Any traditions? The Canada Day party is our tradition, DH's aunt hosts it every year, it's a great time to get together with friends and family. It's a potluck/BBQ and she has adult games and kid games and a campfire at the end of the day.
Do you wear red and white? Of course, we wouldn't be allowed at the party if we didn't LOL!
Do you see fireworks? Not usually.

Anyone have any special plans? Nothing major, just finishing my apartment which seems to be taking forever.
Any traditions? Well, usually I'd go to my friend's cabin to have a few drinks and have a fire. Not this year though.
Do you wear red and white? If I have any red or white things cleaned, lol.
Do you see fireworks? Oh yes, my friends and I usually buy some fireworks ourselves and set them off. Always a good time. Sadly we won't be doing it this year.
