“Last year’s event was a great success with over 350 people in attendance,” said Don Lavoie, chair of the volunteer Canada Day Committee organizing the event. “This year’s event promises to be a great time as the Canadian community and its many friends comes together to celebrate Canada’s birthday,” he added. Through this annual event, the Canada Day Committee also raises funds which are contributed to the Thai Fund Foundation (TFF).
Officially, Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st each year, but the event will be held early in Bangkok to accommodate school breaks and to allow for more families to participate in the festivities. The aim of this annual event is to encourage Canadians and their families, friends, and colleagues of all ages and nationalities, to gather and celebrate Canada Day in a lively atmosphere, with delicious food, exciting games and fantastic camaraderie.
The Canada Day Celebration features children’s games, tug-of-war, water balloon toss, volley ball, and various sporting activities for adults, including the ever-popular ball hockey tournament! A delicious buffet dinner will be served following the afternoon activities. Canadian wines and the ever-popular Canadian beer are being made available for the occasion, as well as Clamato juice for the uniquely Canadian Bloody Caesar. Event ticket holders will also be eligible to win a host of fabulous lucky draw prizes including dinner vouchers, hotel and vacation stays, plus a round trip ticket to Canada.
