With Canada 150 fast approaching, streets are soon to be packed with people decked out in their best reds and whites.

It won’t only be excited pedestrians to look out for if you happen to be behind the wheel downtown over the weekend (good luck!), as such a massive event is also going to take over a few streets, and restrict parking on others.
