Canada Day Parade 2018 to Remember by the Scorching Heat Wave

-

The Canada Day parade in 2018 will be one to remember by the scorching heat wave. We have attended to watch like every other year, but it was exceptionally hot and humid. It didn’t seem like there were many people around at first if one would look around, especially at the West side of the Yonge Street, the sunny side. The East side of the Yonge Street was where everyone was hiding in the shade. It was a definitely a hot and humid day, but everyone seemed to survive.

Afterwards we did venture out to festivities at the Lambert Willson Park afterwards, however, by noon we were done – physically exhausted from the heat.

Here are few intriguing and smiling faces, despite the heat, from the Canada Day Parade that took place on Yonge Street.

About Yonge Street, “Yonge passes through the core of Aurora, and in the regional seat of Newmarket, Yonge serves as the town’s main suburban artery, passing through low-density residential and commercial areas, bypassing its core to the west.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yonge_Street
