Tens of thousands of Canadians flocked to Parliament Hill in Ottawa on July 1 to celebrate the country's 141st birthday. The revellers were mostly decked out in red and white - the color of Canada's flag.
The Canada Day celebrations began with a military parade through downtown Ottawa.
The celebration also included a number of musical performances including Canada's Blue Rodeo.
The musical performances were followed by a 30-minute fireworks display on Parliament Hill that started at 10:05 p.m.
The crowd was estimated at 75,000.
Canadian flags painted the streets. They were on heads, hats, faces and on sticks flapping in the warm breeze.
