There are a lot of things to love about Canada Day – fireworks, drinking, campfires – but nothing is as good as the classic Canadian food. Whether it’s breakfast or a barbecue, here are nine places to get free food on our nation’s birthday.
On Canada Day, there’s no better place to score some grub than our capital city. You want McDonald’s coffee and smoothies? St. Albert cheese curds? President’s Choice ice cream? It’s all there for the taking.
If you’ve never visited this small town, now is the time. Stop in for their free pancake breakfast and then go burn some calories in the on-site bouncy castle.
Can you picture a more beautiful Canada Day than one spent shoving some free cake in your face beside a scenic waterfall?
#SpoonTip: If you’re feeling wild, spend a few nights in a hotel then take a short drive to the States to celebrate July 4th.
Instead of going through all of the effort of cutting a cake, Huntsville decided to serve up some perfectly portioned cupcakes. It’s that kind of smart thinking that made Canada the awesome country it is today.
New Tecumseth is stepping up the free food game by offering not only cake but hot dogs. Dinner and dessert? Yes, please.
This central city promises a “special” cake from a local bakery. As if that isn’t great enough, Clarabella the Clown is offering up some complementary face painting. #blessed
