National Geographic : 1967 Mar
Canadians everywhere are celebrating. It's the hundredth birthday of Canada's Confederation. The party is nation-wide... saluting the past and visioning a great future. Over twenty-six hundred new areas of culture and recreation have been built to commemorate the occasion. New plays have been written. New ballets, symphonies, films and books. Sports will be on a scale unequaled anywhere. Over 15 world championship meets alone. A special Confederation Train will tour the land featuring a unique electronic display ... Canada from ice age to space age. A Military Tattoo- dramatically portraying 300 years of military history - will move across the country performing in 42 major cities. This will be coupled with air shows. Musical horse rides. Naval assemblies. And much more. For a memory you'll treasure - join us in Canada for Centennial. Share a quick look at the past... and look ahead with us to a future's promise. Canada is on parade. The welcome mat is out... coast-to-coast... all year long.
