No Fireworks, Just Chillin’ on Canada Day

For hopefully the last time, there will be no Canada Day celebrations, including fireworks, in Bronte due to COVID gathering restrictions. Families and small groups of up to 25 are invited to enjoy the Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park and the surrounding district on July 1 to picnic, chill out, shop and dine. 

Personal fireworks, large gatherings, public alcohol consumption or parking on private property or on neighbourhood streets are not permitted. Halton Police and local bylaw enforcement will be out to ensure all COVID guidelines, parking and fireworks restrictions are followed.

As a designated tourism destination, Bronte businesses can be open as per current health & safety protocols. Check with your favourite shop before you come down for holiday hours and make sure you understanding the parking/towing restrictions. Better yet, walk into the neighbourhood or ride your bike. There are two bike corrals on Bronte Rd. near Marine Dr.

There’s also plenty to do at home and in nearby neighbourhoods with fewer crowds like a new public art project called ConNextions. Check out the Town of Oakville’s listing.
