With Canada Day quickly approaching, we can't think of a better place to celebrate our country than the nation's capital.
Keeping with tradition, this year's celebration will take place on the lawns of Parliament Hill, Major’s Hill Park, Jacques Cartier Park and throughout the streets of downtown Ottawa.
But if you're heading down for the party, be sure to stick around for a few days.
