Canada Day parade invites you

  • Jun. 8, 2009 5:00 p.m.

submitted by the Port Clements Recreation Committee–Everyone on the Islands is invited to the Canada Days Parade in Port Saturday June 27 at 10 am.The theme for the 2009 parade is “Down on the Farm”. With the rising costs of imported food, many people in our communities have taken an interest in gardening and local food production. Due to declining entries, the parade almost didn’t happen this year. However, the recreation committee has decided that Canada Days wouldn’t be as fun for the children of our communities without the parade. This year we are challenging everyone to enter and participate in. This includes businesses, clubs, individual families and children. We especially invite people with farm animals and pets to show off.Here’s a list of the categories for cash prizes: -theme float, commercial float, non-commercial/service club, out of town entry, theme clown, motorcycle/ATV, dressed animal, decorated bikes, wagons, strollers for 7 years and younger, 8-11years and 12 and olderHope to see you all there. Information or questions, call Harmonie, 557-9359.
