Snowbirds Are Saluting Halton Hills for Canada 150

The Canadian Snowbirds are making an historic, special salute to Halton Hills - also known as Canada's Most Patriotic Town - on Thursday afternoon.

The honour comes after tallying a final flag count of 57,073 during the Most Patriotic Town Challenge -- that’s when Canadian flags were everywhere for Canada 150 celebrations.

The flyover is taking place on Aug. 31 at 1:45 p.m.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to gather at one of six Celebration Points at 1:15 p.m.
