The Canada Day Parade

First, my heartfelt thanks to all who participated in celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday.

We had 25 participants, mostly grannies, but also 4 antique car/truck drivers. These men were kind enough to transport the ladies who preferred to ride. We even had several children walking and riding their bikes! We had one grandother walk with us as well.
Many thanks to the photographers for their wonderful images.
As usual at the Parksville parade, the streets were thronged along the entire route. We Grannies seemed to receive our fair share of cheers and “go grannies” from the crowd.
A special thanks to the drivers, Tom, Neil, Bill and Bob for the use of your beautiful vehicles. Mostly because of them and Carolyn Dodd, we won a prize in the “other” category. Everyone went all out with clothing, umbrellas, tattoos and flags. We had a blast!!!
See you next year.
