there's a reason why i love this town

Canada Day was warm and sunny and perfect here.  I actually spent most of the day close to home being domestic but in the evening I headed along the river to join the crowds downtown.  Of course the highlight this Canada Day in Fredericton was the free concert from one of this city's favourite Canuck singer-songwriters Joel Plaskett. 
 I'm still not totally clear on how we scored this concert but the city turned out in droves to celebrate with Joel. Officers Square was as packed as I've ever seen it. (And of course Lord Beaverbrook was there to oversee things.)

Joel was still going strong and the square was still packed at dusk as the riverbanks began to fill up with people seeking out a good vantage point for the fireworks.  A great night celebrating a great country in our great city.
