Happy Canada Day from your Miss Toronto – World 2017!
Representing the largest city in Canada, I was very excited about Canada’s 150th birthday! I had a much-anticipated weekend full of events planned. Here are all of the highlights!
My Canada Day started out downtown Toronto with my red and white colors all ready! There were so many events going on this year, especially since it’s the 150th Canada Day. My first stop was at Nathan Phillips Square, where the signature Toronto sign resides and the historic Yonge-Dundas Square.
My meet-and-greet was so much fun! I met people from all over the world – from local Torontonians to visitors from England! Check out some of the pictures below!
Up next was the Canada Day Parade and I was really thrilled about having my own float! Although it began to rain, it didn’t stop everybody’s spirits! We still started on time and everybody embraced the Canadian weather! My ride was at the very end of the parade, alongside the Mayor of Markham, Frank Scarpitti.
Have you heard about the big yellow duck that visited Toronto’s waterfront? I got a front-row view of the rubber duck on its first day of arrival! Look at how big it is!
It is the first time we’ve had this in Toronto and it attracted a record-breaking number of visitors! Too bad it will only be here for 4 days, before it continues its tour across Ontario.
Notice I’m still keeping up the red and white color scheme? 😉 I had it all planned out ahead of time! It was such a busy Canada Day weekend and I got to meet so many people! I hope you all had an enjoyable long weekend yourselves! Check out some more of my picture highlights below:
