All in all, Mississauga packed a 'pretty fun Canada Day party', or so said Martina Sorbara, lead singer of Dragonette. The Juno award-winning band took centre stage in Celebration Square.
In between songs, Sorbara thanked the masses for welcoming her and Dragonette, adding that in Mississauga, "people sure do know how to have fun." But, she did not leave the stage without singing a special rendition of Happy Birthday to Canada. Thousands lined the crowds for this year's festivities.
At intermission, the crowds were wowed with a 'sky scraping' cirque show. Many seemed to have held their breaths before cheering wildly with applause, as the duo performed a handful of difficult, (and not to mention) dangerous maneouveurs.
Later in the evening, the last set of fireworks crackled just after 11 p.m. But for those who came, it was an action packed Canada Day, with numerous acts, performances, food, music, art, complete — of course — with a spectacular fireworks show.
