This weekend marked two very special days for both Canadians and Americans. Canada Day was celebrated July 1 with people all over the nation showing their love for 150 years of gratitude, Tim Hortons coffee and of course a little hockey, while our neighbours to the south showed their love for all things patriotic and proud.
It’s amazing to see that the celebrities we have all grown to love also took part in the celebrations.
Too busy with your own festivities to see what these celebs were up to? Have no fear! We have compiled a list of how some of our fave celebrities celebrated this week.
Shawn Mendes (Canadian)
This boy has risen to the top and everyone who’s anyone knows that this Canadian cutie is going places. His tribute to Canada Day was an adorable photo of his family along side Prime minister Justin Trudeau – how’s that for showing off? Canadian spirit at it’s best!
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott (Canadian/American)
It was a busy weekend for this couple who celebrated both Canada Day as well as Independance Day – Dean is Canadian while his wife is from The USA. No doubt about it, Dean is a HUGE hockey lover! He celebrated along side of his wife displaying hockey jerseys from his favorite teams. A true Canadian to say the least!
Tory also took to Instagram to show some American pride with her tribute to Donna Martin – her 90210 character photos showing Tory dressed in the American flag colours. This duo is patriotic and proud!
Shania Twain (Canadian)
Seems like Canadian born, Twain also ran into Mr Trudeau a couple of times on the weekend. She posted this photo from WeDay in celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday.
Kelly Ripa (American)
How adorable is this throwback photo of Kelly Ripa and her sister on the 4th of July 1974!? Too much cuteness! Seems like Kelly has always been big on Independence Day celebrations!
Unless you were a Degrassi fan back in the day, you might mistake Drake for American, but this true Canadian hasn’t forgotten his roots. He surprised a crowd at Nathan Phillips Square this weekend with a dedication to Canada’s 150th!
Kristen Bell and Dax Sheppard (American)
Besides being the most adorable couple in Hollywood, this couple has creative spark and a lot of enthusiasm! Look at the matching PJ’s to celebrate this weekend – can we say, goals? Love!
How did you celebrate the long weekend? We’d love to know!
