Canada Day

July 1st is Canada Day. This year was Canada's 145th birthday!
<3 Canada

I spent my Canada Day in Ottawa, the capital, and it was absolutely insane!
They shut down the main street along where the parliament buildings are. There were so many people everywhere!

There was a concert that was going on, no super special performers though. They had some French singers there, and Simple Plan and Feist were to perform later on in the evening but I didn't stay long enough for that.
Parliament Hill Festivities! We were way far away from the stage; you can just get an idea of how many people were in front of us. So many people were behind us too, trying to get closer to the stage, and also just walking around on the streets
Everyone was showing a lot of National Pride and wearing red and white. Apart from drunk hooligans, everyone who walked by you on the street was just super nice and patriotic. It was a really awesome vibe
For people who actually live in Ottawa though, it was a nightmare. It was impossible to get into any restaurant, bar, pub or club because everything was just so insanely crowded. A lot of streets were closed so cars had trouble getting to where they needed to be. A lot of families were out enjoying the festivities but it's not always a good idea to mix young children with massive drunken crowds.

All in all though it was an amazing day! This is the first Canada day in a long time that I've actually celebrated! To be in the capital city just made it all the more special
