Surrey Canada Day was awarded “Most Outstanding Event” at the BC Event Awards held last week.
Surrey’s Canada Day celebration is presented by Coast Capital Savings and has grown to reach attendance levels surpassing 100,000 people with top-notch entertainment, great food, family-friendly activities and a spectacular fireworks finale.
“Surrey is a city for families and we want to offer our residents free, world-class events the whole family can enjoy. I love seeing the community come together at our events, and Canada Day is particularly special because it’s an opportunity to celebrate all the qualities that make our city and our country such a special and unique place to live,” says Mayor Dianne Watts. “We’re very proud to be receiving local and national recognition for the festivals we host, and we owe our success to the tremendous support we receive from residents and the local business community.”
The BC Event Awards is designed especially for events produced exclusively in British Columbia, over the course of the last calendar year. All entries are judged by the CEP Magazine Advisory Council.
