Canada Day Parade Theme Chosen
The Hatley Municipal Association, the committee responsible for organizing the annual Canada Day Celebration in Hatley, has chosen this year’s theme for the popular parade: Canada, Then and Now! Float makers can now put on their thinking caps and start figuring out how to creatively display this theme- after all, there are plenty of prizes for the floats and other parade entries judged the best and most original by the Canada Day judges.
This year’s event, to be held on Sunday, July 1st, will be the 104th annual Canada Day celebration in Hatley. Although not all of the activities are finalized yet for the day, one activity that is returning is the soapbox derby. The soapbox derby is for young drivers aged at least 7 years old as of the day of the race. Anyone looking for instructions on how to build a soap box can contact the Canada Day organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org or check online at www.hatleyparade.com. The celebration will also include the traditional children’s games, horse-drawn wagon rides, live music and fireworks. For information about the celebration, please contact Kylie at (819) 821-3282.
The Shriners in their zany little cars are always a hit in the Hatley Canada Day Parade.
