Canada turns 150 on July 1st so this years Armed Forces Day on Friday June 16th promises to be a special one.

There will be two days of events: the aviation campus at Canadore will be the site of North Bay Armed Forces Day with several military static displays on site.

The following day, at the waterfront, there will be performances by the Canadian Forces SkyHawks, a CF-18 Demonstration team and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds.

The waterfront celebrations, including the twilight air show, will start at 5 pm and wrap up at 10 pm on June 17th.

Officials gathered for a planning session this week.
