Opening ceremonies will kick off at 4:30 p.m. with Kalista Wilson singing ‘O Canada.’ The day will also include live performances from The Heat, Kailey Haskell, Penalty Box, From the Hip, local favourites The Doozies and the legendary Dandy Lion Wine.

There will also be displays from community partners, local food vendors, family, beach and activity zones, a midway and more. At 10 p.m., a firework show presented by Tribute Communities will close the day with a spectacular celebration of light.

“City staff have outdone themselves again by creating another signature event that features something for everyone to enjoy,” said Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter. “Join us for a day of fun with family and friends in beautiful Lakeview Park this July 1.”
