Saturday was Canada Day and we celebrated Canada’s 150th birthday. Normally Canada Day is a huge draw, but this year it definitely did seem to be bigger. I was in the Falls until around 5 pm, and took these pictures late in the afternoon. There were lots of people around, but there were still more to come. I wasn’t there at night, but I’ve been told that after the fireworks on Saturday night that Clifton Hill (no cars allowed, pedestrian traffic only) was literally shoulder to shoulder filled with people. It must have been quite a sight.
Update: Apparently Clifton Hill was NOT officially closed on Saturday night. It is just that there were so many people they just swarmed the street and the cars couldn’t move anywhere. You can see a couple of crazy picture of it on the Clifton Hill Facebook page.
