Virtual Canada Day by the Bay 2020

The City of White Rock is hosting a Virtual Canada Day by the Bay celebration on July 1 between 7 and 9 p.m., featuring an O Canada sing-along, an online marketplace, and two hours of entertainment that include comedy, music, trivia and prizes.

Tune in just before 7 p.m. to the City’s Facebook page or YouTube channel for the event hosted by Michele Partridge of the Drama Class, opening with an O Canada sing-along led by local resident Mark Donnelly, well known as Mr. O Canada.

The City will livestream a concert from Blue Frog Studios in White Rock with a performance from the band Ludic, a local favourite for their innovative and playful sound. Comedian John Cullen will showcase his unique brand of comedy as seen on CBC’s The Debaters.
