Show us your Canadiana at Canada Day Parade
The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce is asking Drumheller residents to show them their Canadiana.
Registration is open for the Annual Canada Day Parade, presented by the Chamber of Commerce. This is a highlight of the Canada Day festivities in the valley, and always well sup- ported by the community.
The theme of this year’s parade is in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday and is simply Canadiana.
“Canadiana encompasses all the lovely things that make us Canadian. The things, ideas, or activities distinctive of Canada or Canadians, especially works of literature and other cultural products,” the chamber states on its website. to Justine ( James) Kay on May 21, Barry Keirle, Lisa Keirle, Kay Zimmerman (Carol Keirle’s mom who is 97) and Justin Main on May 22, Steve Panisiak on May 25, Curtis Leonhardt and Marcia Poland on May 27 and Devan Dekeyser and Helen Leonhardt on May 31.
Best wishes on your wedding anniversary to Bob and Marilyn Thomas on May 21.
The Chamber welcomes any business, groups or individuals to enter this year’s parade. It has always been free of charge. They encourage all kinds of entries, from pedestrians to floats.
The Chamber does note its liability insurance does not cover livestock. If an entry is to include any livestock, liability insurance must be provided by the entry at least one week before the parade.
Last year the organizers of the parade changed the route to ease traffic congestion, and they will be using the same route as 2016.
Registration can be done online by going to www. drumhellerchamber.com and download the entry form, or in person at the Chamber office. They ask that entries be received by June 23.
