Throughout the Canada Day weekend celebrations, guests that show their Canadian sprit by wearing red will be randomly selected throughout the Park and awarded prizes such as front-of-the-line passes, free funnel cakes, and much more!

Closing out with a bang, the Park will say, "Happy Birthday Canada" with a custom-designed fireworks show that features over 5,000 colourful explosions and exclusive effects created just for Canada's Wonderland!
