4th of July

Does anybody know of any 4th of July events going on in Toronto? Or even what bars are likely to have some American expats in them? :)


My spouse and I celebrate both Thanksgivings. I celebrate Canada Day. As for the 4th, I have not really seen it acknowledged at all here. Some years I go down to the states to get my fix. It was my favorite holiday of the year and I really miss celebrating it. This year I'm staying in Canada, but next year going down to the states. Don't let anyone dissaude you from celebrating both holidays. I will be an American citizen till the day I die. But I will also be a Canadian citizen next year.
Congratulations! I get to apply for my Canadian citizenship in August - I'm very excited!

I agree with you about the 4th. I've loved it ever since I was a kid, and I miss it here! Canada Day is fun too, of course, but naturally it doesn't have the same association and memories for me as Independence Day does. Last year the CN Tower was lit up red, white, and blue, which I thought was really cool, but I miss the parades and fireworks. Haven't managed to make it back to the US for the 4th yet, but one of these years I will!
I get to apply for my citizenship in August, too! :)
