What To Do & What To Wear Canada Day Weekend

Finally Canada Day is landing on a Friday, making everyone's long weekend dreams come true. Happy 149th birthday Canada! With sunny skies ahead we hope you get to experience the celebrations sitting on a dock but if you're in the city, we've rounded up some great options to make your time off well spent!
The ladies of Gotstyle are here with our favourite things to do this Canada Day long weekend and how to do them in style! Visit us in the Distillery District to shop the looks!

Happening at different spots around the city (but our fave is Ashbridges Bay) the show of lights never disappoints. Arrive early so as you get a good seat, and dress in layers for when it cools off at night!
