In 2017, London, Ontario was presented with a feast of activities, ranging from celebrations, commemorations, legacy projects and festivals, fully designed to showcase the wonder, legacy and aspiration of Canada, right within our own city.
Three of our landmark signature initiatives are highlighted below: SESQUIFEST, London's Passport to Canada Day, and the up and coming New Year's Eve celebration in Victoria Park. The other 100 or so festivities came out of the community at large, and showcased wonderfully London's capacity for fun, patriotism and lasting legacies. We look forward to the next 50 years!
Bidding 2017 farewell in style! More info to come.
