Virgin Radio Street Squad Takes on Canada Day


H’eh! Madi and Nermeen here, and we just wrapped up Canada Day! We started our day by gearing up for the parade with our window flags! We wouldn’t be true Canadians if we didn’t hit Tim Hortons first thing. We ordered a double double and their Canadian Fireworks Donut with popping candy on it. 


We then went in the Royal Tattoo Parade! So many people were out celebrating our country. Waving at everybody and have them wave back made us so proud to be Canadian.


Next we hit Alderney Landing for some last minute preparation for the BIG concert. Our posters rep our very own, Shawn Mendes! We loved seeing everybody taking pictures for their Instagram!


We went to Bedford Days and hung out, went on the bouncy castles and ate SNOW CONES!! What flavour do you get? 


Next we danced our way through the live concert hosted at the public gardens. 


We hit the Fuse Festival in the Halifax Common and took a trip around the world by watching dances from all different cultures! 


Finally, we ended our day at Alderney Landing for the main event, A-trak. We hyped the crowd up during the opening acts, including Josh Kelly, Carmen Townsend, Kallitechnis, Ellevator, and The Sorority. We even threw some t-shirts into the crowd!! 


Fireworks were lit then A-trak came on and jammed out. 


It was an absolutely amazing day. We loved being involved in all of the community events and celebrating the true north with you! We hope to see you soon!
