This year's Canada Day celebration is going to be different than in past years. Even though we cannot gather together to celebrate, we can still show our national pride from our homes. We hope you will take part in the activities that we have planned.
Canadian Flag Window Poster
Be sure to look out for your free Canadian flag window poster in The Era newspaper on Thursday, June 25, 2020. We hope to see them in everyone's front windows facing the street. Tag @TownOfNewmarket and use the hashtag #NewmarketEH to show us your Canadian pride outdoor decor!
