Parade Information

The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. at Riedel St., moves north along Franklin Ave. and ends at the corner of Main St. and Clearwater Dr. When watching the parade, remember to stay on the sidewalk and behind temporary security fencing, while keeping a safe distance from moving floats.

Main Street is designated as a sensory-friendly block. This new parry feature is for those who need a quieter and calmer parry experience. Once the floats leave Franklin Avenue to join Main Street, the horns and sirens will stop as the floats move silently to complete the parade at Clearwater Dr.

Canada Day is an opportunity to learn and reflect on our shared history

As you enjoy the day, take time to reflect and learn more about Canada’s shared history, while thinking about the future we want to build together and the active role you are playing.

We gratefully acknowledge that this land is Treaty 8 territory, the traditional and ancestral land of the Cree, Dene and Métis peoples. We recognize that our history began long before the first Canada Day on what is called part of Turtle Island.
