Parade Needs More Entries
With about one week left to the deadline to enter, the Canada Day Parade needs more entries.
As of Tuesday morning, the parade had 35 entries. The deadline to enter the parade is Friday, June 22. Parade applications can be submitted online at www.FortSaskCanadaDay.ca by clicking on the “Enter The Parade” button. Paper applications can also be downloaded from the website.
“Thank you to everyone who has already entered,” says parade chairman Conal MacMillan.
“The new online form has clearly been the most popular way to enter the parade because approximately 70 per cent of applications have come through it so far this year.”
With Canada Day falling on a Sunday this year, parade watchers are reminded that the start time has moved to noon to respect the faith community in the city.
The pancake breakfast, sponsored by Dow Chemical Canada and hosted by the Fort Saskatchewan Fire Department, will still take place from 8 to 10 a.m. but the opening ceremonies in Legacy Park will be pushed to 2 p.m. from the usual 1 p.m.
The Adopt-A-Barricade Program still needs individuals, couples and families to sign up. As of Tuesday morning, five of the 28 barricades had been adopted. All program details are available in a PDF on the Canada Day website at www.FortSaskCanadaDay.ca by clicking the “Enter The Parade” button.
