Most floats or groups were introduced by banners. ↑ ↓


It is Canada, and hockey was well represented. ↑ ↓

A Small Town Parade– see the rest here

There were no really big bands. Our two high school bands went by on floats …

… and there were two small highland bands. (There are many Scottish and Irish roots in this area.)



Several groups of dancers, representing local clubs and academies, sashayed by.

Most floats, and I used the term lightly, were pulled by trucks, tractors …

… or even buses (although the bus itself was the float in this case).

Even the genuine floats were pretty rudimentary.


But there was spirit, camaraderie and joy. Everybody and their dog enjoyed it …
