Canadian Online Radio Network would like to wish Canada & Canadians a very Happy 150th Birthday!

150 years of Canadian ideals is what makes this country such a great place to live and grow. In our neck of the woods, the Seaway Valley, it was customary to visit the waterfront and partake in a day full of events and attractions. There were, what seemed to be things for both kids and adults to enjoy. Rides, games, food & drinks, and best of all... Live Entertainment! Weather permitting we would end the days attractions with a spectacular display of fireworks, set on the backdrop of the beautiful St. Lawrence River and the Seaway International Bridge.

Although the year changes on the calendar, most of us can still enjoy Canada Day the way our parents, grandparents and so on enjoyed it. My childhood was lived in the late 70's and 80's which means some things have changed along the way, but you can still count on catching thousands of onlookers and participants enjoying Lamoureux Park on the banks of the St. Lawrence in beautiful Cornwall, Ontario CANADA! See you there Saturday!
