Happy Canada Day, Rocky Point!

Just a short note to wish a belated Happy Canada Day to everyone in Canada (it was actually yesterday, July 1), and to any Canadians who might be in Puerto Penasco today.

And to all Americans getting ready for the 4th of July, why not take advantage of Canada's national holiday and start partying now out of respect for our northern neighbors? It's the least we can do, and then we might as well keep celebrating until Monday. Si como no?

Frequently referred to as "Canada's birthday", Canada Day is Canada's national day, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the 1 July 1867 enactment of the British North America Act, which united Canada as a single country, which was in turn composed of four provinces. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally.

Canadian expatriates will organize Canada Day activities in their local area on or near the date of the holiday. For instance, Canada Day is celebrated In Chapala, Mexico every year at the American Legion. Also, the Canadian Club in Ajijic, Mexico holds a celebration. Maybe eventually something can be put together in Rocky Point?
