Saturday, July 1 is Canada's 150th birthday, and CBC Montreal celebrating in style!
Start your day on a patriotic note by tuning into All in a Weekend from 6 - 9 a.m. on CBC Radio One. Guest host Rebecca Ugolini will be playing music from some of our listeners' favourite Canadian bands.
From 11 - 4, CBC Montreal will be at Kent Park in Côte-des-Neiges-NDG as part of la Grande Tournée.
Stop by our tent to play games and compete for special CBC Canada Day gear.
This is also a chance to record a special birthday message for your country, as well as share your stories of what you love about your community. We'll be using this material for CBC social video and TV promos.
Take a late afternoon radio break from 5 - 6 p.m. with Cinq à Six, which will offer "A Canadian Celebration: words by Canadian poets and music by Canadian songwriters".
If you can't join us on Canada Day in person, you can certainly join us on your devices. As the official broadcaster of Canada Day activities across the country, CBC/Radio-Canada has a full lineup of special programming and coverage on CBC, CBC News Network, ICI RDI and other platforms.
The primetime special, including the fireworks from Ottawa, will be broadcast on CBC and Radio-Canada networks and streamed live on CBC.ca and Radio-Canada.ca.
And if you haven't checked it out yet, visit CBC 2017 to see features on Canada and its amazing people, places and things. CBC 2017 is a year-long project focusing on our national identity, a place to reflect on our history, assess our present and forecast our future. It's really worth a look.
