    This annual event is a mud-flinging, wheel-spinning, adrenaline-filled good time. Come watch the drivers tackle the mud pits at this Canadian Mud Racing Organization-sanctioned mud bog event. Within the CMRO racing community, we've been told that Plamondon’s Mud Bog event is a "do-not-miss" on the mud bog circuit.

    There is no official way to celebrate Canada Day. Many stay in their backyards with friends and have barbecues, and many celebrate with crowds and music, face-painting, fireworks and flags. Whistler creates a four-day Canada Day event that has all of that and more for people who shout proudly "I am Canadian!" and who embrace the cultural mosaic that Canada has become. Come celebrate Canada's 148th birthday in the fresh mountain air.
