Kitchener-Waterloo celebrates Canada Day 2017
People braved rainy weather to celebrate the country's 150th birthday
Saturday's thunderstorm didn't stop people from celebrating Canada Day in Kitchener-Waterloo.
Many made their way to downtown Kitchener to enjoy live music events as many Canadian country artists performed at the large stage set up outside Kitchener City Hall.
Earlier in the day, 25 people became Canadian citizens at a special ceremony.
Others made their way to Columbia Lake for the 33rd annual University of Waterloo Canada Day celebration, known for its fireworks display.
The event also celebrates the university's 60th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of the Federation of Students.
