The Parade commencing at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, September 2. All participants must submit an application by July 31. There will be no on-site registration. The size of the parade is limited, and due to the number of applications we receive, we may not be able to accept late or incomplete applications.
The form up area is the Burnco Site on River Ave just south of Griffin Road. All parade participants must be on the Burnco site no later than 9:30 a.m.
Coffee is provided by Tim Hortons for all participants in the form-up area the morning of the parade. When the parade is finished, there will be hot dogs and pop for all participants and volunteers courtesy of Cochrane IGA, locally owned and operated by Barry and Dawn Metcalfe. Thanks to both these groups.
The form up area (donated by Burnco) will be open from 2 p.m. on Sunday for entries wanting to bring equipment etc. to the site the day before. Details are available from the Parade Committee. Click here to see route map.
The Parade will leave the form up area and go north on River Ave, west on 1st Street, south on 4th Ave, east on Railway Ave, south on Charlesworth Street, east on Griffin Road and south on River Ave back to the original form up area.
