Sunrise Ceremony on Signal Hill July 1, Canada's Big Birthday Bash on George Street on the night of June 30, afternoon family entertainment and concert on Confederation Building hill, fireworks from Quidi Vidi Lake evening July 1.

Day trips: Visit Ferryland, see the Colony of Avalon, walk to the lighthouse.

Drive to Brigus and Cupids. Cupids is the site of Canada's first colony and there are ongoing archaeological digs. Brigus is a beautiful and historic village near Cupids.
