We are Canada's Most Patriotic Town!

STAND PROUD HALTON HILLS. WE MADE HISTORY!

The response to the Most Patriotic Town Challenge was truly OUTSTANDING!

Over Canada Day weekend, flags were flying on front porches, balconies, garages, fences, gardens, flower pots, driveways, parks, and businesses. Everywhere you looked flags were flying in Halton Hills!

It was such an inspiring and patriotic sight!

When the Chamber of Commerce Tourism Committee set the goal of 15,000 flags we never dreamed that over 57,000 flags would be flown on Canada Day!

Halton Hills truly is small town living at its patriotic best!

Remember to keep your flags for next year.
