Pa­rade deemed a suc­cess

Cape Breton Post - - NEWS -

Mem­bers of the New Water­ford Coal Dust Days pa­rade com­mit­tee say there was a won­der­ful turnout Sun­day, both in the pa­rade and on the side­lines.

“The pa­rade com­mit­tee would like to thank ev­ery­one who took the time to par­tic­i­pate, whether with an en­try or as a spec­ta­tor,” said Janette MacKin­non. “It takes both to make the pa­rade a suc­cess.”

MacKin­non said there were 36 floats as well as an­tique cars and emer­gency re­sponse ve­hi­cles in the pa­rade.

The pa­rade win­ners were: best walk­ing en­try, Ash­ley Grant; best en­thu­si­as­tic group, Bre­ton Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre grad­u­ates 2015; best dressed pets, Tim Hor­tons- spon­sored Cly­des­dale horses from Mira; best over­all en­try, The Hawks Club.

MacKin­non said it was a lot of work plan­ning the pa­rade, but all worth it.

“Not ev­ery­body can win a plaque but the idea be­hind it all is to par­tic­i­pate in any way — big or small — to help our town and com­mu­nity to have fun, to help this an­nual sum­mer­time event con­tinue to grow year af­ter year.”

The Coal Dust Days pa­rade com­mit­tee in­cludes chair Tracy Wil­son, Janette MacKin­non, Jim MacKin­non, Jen­nifer Hef­fer­nan, Dave Wil­ton. Low­ell Cormier, Ron­nie Mac­Don­ald, Jodi MacPher­son, Norm Berg­eron and Cathy Tim­mons. The judges were Tanya Keep­ing, Mary Mullins and Allan Mac­Don­ald.
