This week in (gay) Vancouver: Oh, Canada! Oh, MG!

Canada turns 147 years old this week.  How are you celebrating?

Oh, Canada! A mere three years away from our sesquicentennial, our annual celebration of the red and white takes place in and around, appropriately enough, Canada Place on July 1. Billed as the largest Canada Day celebration outside our nation’s capital, the day long activities include performances on three stages, a lumberjack show, a parade and fireworks. But all the fun is eclipsed by the annual Citizenship Ceremony where 60 new Canadians will finally be able to call the best place on earth their official home.

Oh, Canada 2! If you want a different perspective on the Canada Day celebrations, consider the CruiseyT Canada Day Fireworks Cruise (Jul 1).  Featuring DJs Zach Shore and Mattilda Ho plus entertainment from Conni Smudge and Iona Whipp.  The cruise will not only give you one of the best seats in the house for the fireworks, but it is sure to be the hottest party going that day, eh!

Oh, MG! RuPaul’s Drag Race season five contestant Ivy Winters (photo above) makes an appearance at Celebrities’ Liberace (Jul 3).  Winner of Miss Congenality that year, she may be known for creating all her own stage outfits, but did you know she is also a fire-eater and stilt walker?  Should make for an interesting evening.
