How do Canadians celebrate the nation’s birthday? Most likely kicking back and enjoying the warmer weather with friends and family. It’s a chance to slow things down and appreciate our country’s finest offerings. We head to cottage country and drive through mountain roads. We go fishing and we head to a few of the events that are held in many cities and towns. We have all time favourite songs that always, ALWAYS reminds us of summer. We take in our share of arts & culture celebrating our creative minds.
I’ve been loving the MADE IN CANADA section in Apple iTunes — it’s really neat to see how much talent our country truly has! If you’re celebrating with friends and family this Canada Day long weekend or just chillin’, you can find your favourite Canadian music artists or discover a few new ones! (My personal fave? Chromeo!) I’m discovering a few new French-Canadian artists as well like Marie-Mai and Karim Ouellet. You can also check out movies, music, books, apps, etc in this category.
If you’re planning to celebrate in one of our big cities and wonder what’s going on here are a few apps that will help you plan your visits!
