For the parade we settled in front of the Aurora Public Library. We arrived after eleven o’clock just in time for the parade arrival at that point. It was our first time
so we did not know what to expect. The parade exceeded our expectations and we will be definitely back next year.

‘This year marks the start of the five-year countdown to Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. As we move toward this important milestone, I invite all Canadians to make the most of this day by celebrating our identity, our values, and our history among family and friends. Let us be proud of all our achievements, which attest to our country’s glorious past and hold the promise of a bright future.

I heard train all day on July 1st and little did I know. As part of a weekend service pilot, GO Transit will be running six southbound trains to Union Station and six northbound trains each Saturday and Sunday (plus holidays) from June 23 to September 3 on its Barrie line.
Aha, that explains train whistle in the morning, train whistle in the afternoon and train whistle at night.
