Canada D’eh Party at Rapscallions
July 1st is a big day for Canadians both at home and abroad as they celebrate Canada Day (Fête du Canada), which internationally often loses a bit of its sheen to the better known American Independence Day which falls a few days later on the 4th of July. Interestingly, the two celebrations celebrate the largely the same thing, except for Canada remaining a member of the British Commonwealth, they signify the birth of both nations.
Canada Day celebrations are held around the world, most notable of which are the events in Trafalgar Square in London as well as in Hong Kong where the Canada Day (aptly named Canada D’eh) celebrations attract thousands of people to Lan Kwai Fong, with 12,000 attending in 2008.
Rapscallions in Futian will be having a party tonight to celebrate the occasion, with Canadian Club, Canadian music, beers, hot dogs and poutine. Everyone is welcome, including Americans to come out and celebrate as a precursor to Independence Day party there on the fourth.
Come out and experience a little bit of Canada!
