Canada Day Pa­rade route changed

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Kyle Smylie

The Canada Day Pa­rade will run a slightly mod­i­fied route this year.

The pa­rade will be­gin at 10:00 a.m. on July 1 along­side River­side Drive, then wind its way through down­town on 3 Ave E be­fore turn­ing south on 1 Street West then east on Rail­way Av­enue and fin­ish on 2 Street East.

The Drumheller and District Cham­ber of Com­merce said the changes were im­ple­mented to pro­vide “the best ex­pe­ri­ence for pa­rade par­tic­i­pants and spec­ta­tors,” al­le­vi­ate traf­fic flow is­sues, al­low pa­rade par­tic­i­pants to easily and safely exit the pa­rade route, and al­low im­proved ac­cess to the Canada Day fes­tiv­i­ties at the foot of the World’s Largest Di­nosaur.

Reg­is­tra­tion for the Canada Day Pa­rade is now open by con­tact­ing the Cham­ber at 403-823-8100.

The Cham­ber would also like to re­mind all pa­rade par­tic­i­pants that candy or other pro­mo­tional items must be handed out, and not thrown from ve­hi­cles.

Any pa­rade en­tries that in­clude live­stock are re­quired to sub­mit proof of li­a­bil­ity in­sur­ance along with the pa­rade reg­is­tra­tion form at least one week prior to the event.
