Canada’s Wonderland: Canada Day Celebrations!

This summer we joined the Canada’s Wonderland #Wondercrew to help spread the word about park events and details. We’ve already visited a couple of times because our family can’t get enough of all of the excitement. Each visit feels like a new experience (especially with young children I tow). With the July long weekend only a few days away, here’s a breakdown of what’s happening at Canada’s renowned theme park:
