The City of Richmond hosted the ultimate birthday party in celebration of Canada’s 150th year of Confederation. The brand new Richmond Canada Day in Steveston presented by YVR featured a free, full-day street party throughout Steveston Village along side the much beloved Steveston Salmon Festival. A headline performance by Juno Award-winners Wintersleep and fireworks over the Fraser River will cap off the celebrations.
“There’s no better time to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary than on our nation’s birthday,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “This year our Canada Day celebrations will be Richmond’s biggest yet with the new street festival, great musical acts, expanded programming for the Steveston Salmon Festival and, of course, fireworks over the Fraser River.”
