Join the Red and White Foot Parade

Canada Day pride binds us together always. There is interest in strengthening and expressing that bond in a new event this year.

Canada Day pride binds us together always. There is interest in strengthening and expressing that bond in a new event this year, a Red and White Foot Parade. You must pre-register for planning and safety purposes at the visitors centre, civic hall, but there is no entry fee, expect no prizes, just the joy and pride of showing your Canadian spirit.

The plan is for a parade route starting from ERS at 4:30 pm, (marshall at 4 p.m.), down Main Street, Riverside Avenue into the Sicamous Beach Park where food vendors, a community picnic atmosphere and a play area for the kids will await. Live music for the evening starts at 7 and runs up to the fireworks at dusk.

Pre-register by June 28 with Jamie at the visitors centre by group or individual, in person. The Red and White theme dress-up can be outrageous, but must be appropriate for family viewing!

Foot traffic includes decorated bicycles and seniors scooters, roller bladers and skateboarders – no ebikes please. Noise makers, rhythm instruments from home, of all nature are welcome – be innovative. Individuals willing and able to share their musical talents while walking in the foot parade are most welcome. No candy or other treats will be thrown.

It’s open to all children, families and individuals, residents or summer residents of the area, and visitors who just like to celebrate Canada here.

Find out how to register your participation at 250-836-3313. Plan to celebrate Canada!
