How to Have the Best Canada Day Ever - #3 Works for Introverts
The long weekend is coming up! Don't waste it on the couch in your PJs or getting caught up on laundry - do something fun, patriotic and pampering! If you're out of laundry, wrap yourself in a giant Canadian flag and get out there! In honour of our nation's birthday, here are the best ways to enjoy Canada Day the SaltZ&Co way.
1. The Fun Canada Day
Want to watch fireworks and rock out to live music? Take the kids on midway rides? Gorge yourself on the best Southern BBQ at Centennial Park's Ribfest? Make it a tradition to go to one of Toronto's bajillion Canada Day celebrations - wherever you live, there's one happening, and it's amazing. Here is the definitive list of What's On in terms of Canada Day 2018 celebrations from food to entertainment to historical events.
BONUS: SaltZ&Co will be at one of these events! Join us at Stan Wadlow Park for the huge East York Canada Day Festival and stock up on everything from Canada Flag soap to free samples. East Side's gonna be smoking hot so get clean with SaltZ!!!
2. The Pampered Canada Day
It is, after all, a rare long weekend, and maybe you aren't the type to enjoy crowds. Make the most of the holiday by going to a fine Toronto day spa like The Elmwood to have a relaxing treatment or three with your honey. They are having a special couples' promotion for Sunday July 1st where you save 20% when you bring a friend or loved one! You can even dine there, we love it :)
BONUS: You can also have a spa day at home, alone in pampered quiet or with some rowdy gals and guys. Our pick: The Girls Just Wanna Night In hamper, which has everything you need for a full day of home spa!
3. The Patriotic Canada Day
There are so many ways to show you are a proud Canadian and if there was ever a day to do it, it's July 1st! Here are some ideas:
-Paint your face with the Canadian flag and take to the streets
-Put on full maple leaf regalia - Dollarama has lots of inexpensive options from hats to flags and everything in between - and sit in your yard wishing people a Happy Canada Day
-Eat Canadian foods like beaver tails, lobster rolls and poutine
-Drink ice cold craft beer
-Sing O Canada at the top of your lungs
-Host a Canada Day BBQ with red and white themed foods
-Stay home and binge-watch The Handmaid's Tale by acclaimed Canadian author Margaret Atwood
Now, there is absolutely nothing on this list we would not like to do ;) However, the duty to spread great-smelling, luscious salt-based bath products to all of Canada is sometimes a heavy one. I'll be under the big tent with the blue banner at Stan Wadlow on July 1st - hope to see you and the kids there!
