So here I am, hours away from my first Canada Day. What would be the most traditional place to celebrate this holiday in Toronto? For instance, is there a place where the main celebration takes place every year, with bands playing, fireworks in the evening, vendors, etc?

I will hopefully be here to attend other Canada Days in the years to come, but I'd like the first celebration to be one that I reminisce about as a very special occasion.

Any suggestions will be welcomed.

Though you will find Canada Day celebrations in Toronto, eventually (if you want to see a big celebration) you should plan a trip up to Ottawa for July 1. It is probably not possible for you this year but do consider it at some point in the future.
