Canada 150 "Celebrate and Decorate" Contest


Canada 150 "Celebrate and Decorate" Contest

To celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation, Brockville & 1000 Islands Tourism is challenging local residents and business owners to show their Canadian Pride by decorating their front doors, porches, and windows with red and white and to fly a Canada flag throughout the year.

Your help is needed to fill our streets with an atmosphere of celebration and pride. Tourism staff hope to see homes and businesses decorated from mid-May to August 12th (at least!) so that decorations are  in place for Canada Day AND for the Canada 150th Celebration of the Grand Opening of Canada's First Railway Tunnel during the Rails to Trails Festival, August 10-13, 2017. To help decorate the city, local residents will be able to purchase Canada Flags at a 25% discount from the Tourism Office Gift Shop from May-June, 2017.

All residents who sign up to participate will be entered into a draw to win a Canada 150 prize pack valued at over $200.

Businesses can participate by decorating their storefronts, signage, or shop windows and will compete to win a grand prize of advertising valued at over $1000. To register your business, please visit:

Residents are invited to fill out a ballot and turn it in to the Brockville & 1000 Islands Tourism Office at 10 Market Street West.

Please visit for additional contest terms and to download a ballot.
