Sarnia to See First Ever 'Virtual Canada Day Parade'


This year’s Canada Day in Sarnia will make history with the first-ever ‘Virtual Canada Day Parade’.


The ‘Virtual Parade’ will be live-streamed by The Show with David Burrows as part of a special Canada Day live-stream broadcast.


Local businesses, organizations, and community stakeholders are being welcomed to participate in this unique and first-ever in Sarnia, ‘Virtual Canada Day Parade’.

The theme for the event is simply ‘Canada Day’ and will be broadcast live at 2 pm on July 1st.


The broadcast will be live on The Show with David Burrows Facebook page at www.fb.com/theshowsarnia and on YouTube at www.youtube.com/davburrows

In addition to showcasing the spirit of Canada in Sarnia-Lambton the ‘Virtual Parade’ will also be giving support to ‘Ohana Landing’ a youth transitional housing facility that officially opened in November of 2019.


Organizer and local talk show host, David Burrows said, “There are so many youth in our community looking for a place not only to call home but to be given an opportunity for hope of success and prosperity in their futures. Sometimes all a person needs to know is that someone believes in them. No matter where they come from or who they are, the youth in our community need to know that they matter and have a chance to grow as a person!”


“It is hard to believe that we will be celebrating the first-year anniversary of the opening of Ohana Landing. With thankful hearts, Gary, and I (and the youth at Ohana Landing) want to acknowledge how we have been blessed with the support of so many community and private members especially through COVID-19. We are grateful to those who walk alongside of us on this journey.” Said Tammy Vandenheuvel


Mark Perrin, Executive Director for Tourism Sarnia-Lambton stated. “We are extremely excited to see what creativity the participants will come up with. When David approached us with the idea, we were on board right away. The Canada Day spirit and community giving is sure to shine in Sarnia-Lambton this July 1st”.

DT Freight Express is also a title sponsor to the ‘Virtual Parade’. “It’s going to be so cool. Sarnia has so much talent to share. We are enormously proud to be a sponsor for this first-ever event in Sarnia.”


The fee to participate in the ‘Virtual Parade’ is $50 with $25 from each fee going to the ‘Ohana Landing’ project.
