City Feels the Love on Canada Day
The City of Fort Saskatchewan was honoured with the best community float award in the Canada Day parade for its Gotta Luv It entry. A little rain could not dampen the spirits of its Gotta Luv It contest entrants who so graciously agreed to participate in the parade. The float was designed to celebrate the City’s new marketing brand, but more importantly, to honour the winners of the Gotta Luv It Moment contest that asked residents and visitors to submit their favourite moment in Fort Saskatchewan.
“It was a bit disheartening to sit through the rain and wonder if the parade would even happen. The word float began to take on a whole new meaning,” exclaimed Jen McEwen, Marketing Coordinator for the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
“In the end, our winners and their family members walked the parade route and distributed 1000 Gotta Luv It sheep and flags to parade goers. It was a great event and we loved being a part of it. I think our stilt walkers added a great dynamic,” McEwen concluded.
Two Fort Saskatchewan residents were recognized at the Legacy Park opening ceremonies for having the top entries in the Gotta Luv It Moments contests that wrapped up on June 15. Mayor Gale Katchur read the stories from Glenn Neilsen and Carol Kaehn and presented the two winners with a gift basket.
“We are continuing to collect your best Fort Saskatchewan moments for another round of prizes this fall,” Mayor Katchur told the audience.
“Just go to ourfortsask.ca and enter your story so we can tell everyone what a great place Fort Saskatchewan is.”
