Surrey's Canada Day is a winner.

The city, alongside special event producer John Donnelly and Associates, has been awarded the 2013 National Star Award for Best Public Entertainment Event in Canada for the July 1 celebration last year.

The National Star Awards were announced at the Canadian Event Industry Awards gala held in Toronto on March 22, 2013. The Canadian Event Industry Star Awards are the country’s most prominent national event industry awards.

“On behalf of city council, I’d like to congratulate and thank our many partners, sponsors and staff for staging the best Canada Day nationwide,” said City of Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts.

The event, held at the Millennium Amphitheatre in Cloverdale, included motocross demos, Peak Performance Project double stage, amusement rides, soccer zone, and numerous family activations.

Past National Star Award recognition for City events included the annual Surrey Fusion Festival, a two-day multicultural event showcasing over thirty different cultural pavilions, as well as BC Event awards for Party for the Planet, Surrey’s Earth Day celebration, and Surrey’s 2010 Olympic Celebration Site.
