Thats right, Canoe Day! In 2007, the canoe was named one of the Seven Wonders of Canada via a CBC Radio feature in which over 1 million votes were cast. In celebration of this, the Canadian Canoe Museum founded National Canoe Day with the aim of increasing participation in paddlesports in Canada, engaging new paddlers and reaching across generational and cultural divides to introduce the canoe to those who haven't had the opportunity to experience this great national heritage. In the intervening years, National Canoe Day has grown to become a truly countrywide event, with participants paddling across the country, from the midnight sun of the north to the urban rivers of the south. National Canoe Day was also celebrated internationally by groups in the United States and the United Kingdom http://www.nationalcanoeday.net/ Title: Peterborough - National Canoe Day Party When: 26.06.2010 - 26.06.2010 Where: Beavermead Park - Peterborough Category: Ontario Description Peterborough celebrates the great Canadian tradition of canoing!
