Thousands of visitors shared in the joy of a warm and sunny Europe Day in the National Capital at Lansdowne Park on 26 May. The day-long celebration marking the 69th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration was hosted by the Delegation of the European Union to Canada and the Embassies of EU Member States.

The celebration featured live music, folk dance performances, games and activities for children, in addition to free sampling of European traditional foods and beverages. Outdoor enthusiasts and those in a competitive mood had the unique chance to brush up on their Irish hurling skills or try their hand at Mölkky - Finland's traditional skittle-throwing game. Smurf mascots were on hand to entertain the crowds.  

 

We would like to thank all our visitors for joining this year's Europe Day celebrations.
