Hamilton is holding a 150th birthday party
Canadian R&B queen Jully Black, singer-songwriter Sarah Slean and Juno-winning bluesman Steve Strongman will be among the performers at Hamilton’s July 1 Canada Day sesquicentennial celebration at Bayfront Park.
“Hamilton joins cities across the country to celebrate Canada’s 150th year as a nation,” Hamilton Mayor Fred Eisenberger said in a statement.
“This important anniversary offers us all a chance to reflect on our city’s contributions to the growth of our nation, from our proud industrial roots to the exciting revitalization transforming our city.”
The party gets underway at 3 p.m. at Bayfront Park with food trucks and entertainment and continues until 10 p.m., concluding with fireworks finale set to an orchestral arrangement performed live by Boris Brott and the National Academy Orchestra.
