Canada wasn’t the only part of our lives marking its 150th Anniversary last week. Town Park, one of Aurora’s favourite green spaces, also marked its 150th anniversary with an old-fashioned afternoon of family fun, before Music in the Park took over with a tribute to Heart.

Before Saturday morning's traditional Canada Day parade, kids were invited to leave their mark outside the Aurora Public Library with chalk drawings wishing Canada a Happy Birthday.
