What’s open, what’s closed in Peterborough for 2020 Canada Day

It’s going to be a quieter Canada Day celebration in Peterborough, Ont., on Wednesday due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic has already forced the cancellation of the city’s annual parade and the Rotary Clubs of Peterborough and Peterborough Kawartha annual fireworks display at Del Crary Park.

The annual Multicultural Festival at Del Crary Park is also cancelled, however, the host New Canadians Centre will be hosting “Peterborough is My Home” – a number of online events including live music.
