"Canada Day 2012 Celebration Choices in Toronto" continues one of DeHaan Services' missions: to highlight interesting and low-cost events in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

"Urban Canadian Flags at HBC" by PinkMoose (Anthony Easton)
July 1st is Canada Day, the national holiday for the Great White North. My article notes a variety of special events on or around that date. In 2012, it's a Sunday, but it does take a long weekend to celebrate properly.

I will always give a nod to events staged by the government, such as the civic music and bands at Mel Lastman Square or the remarkably under-publicized "fun and free activities" at Queen's Park.

History buffs might pay regular admission to experience "Dominion Day" at Black Creek Pioneer Village.

Perhaps the biggest and most exuberant party will be the Pride Parade on Sunday.

My article has convenient links to those events and the others that are not mentioned here. I also promote my article in my Xanga blog ("2012 Canada Day Events in Toronto").

Writing Tips based on Canada Day 2012 in Toronto

This writing tip is pretty obvious.

If you need a niche, build a portfolio of articles about annual local events.

Be sure to take a unique approach. One sure-fire winner is to adapt a "review" style, much as one would review a restaurant or movie. Your first-person account, illustrated with your own photographs, will be indisputably personalized.

My approach is to give people options for planning to attend special events, rather than reviewing them afterwards. In my view, that makes it difficult to write with the same authority; even if I had been there the previous year.

That's the approach I've taken in writing about upcoming Canada Day events in Toronto for July 1, 2012.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
