Sechelt Canada Day Parade 2013

A highlight of the year in this small town is the annual Canada Day parade. This was the third year I got to be in attendance.

It starts with some classic cars. You know them because they’re the same ones you saw the year before and the year before that or that you’ve seen driving around town.

The fly-over. This plane will hit multiple communities in the province on Canada Day.

It’s not Canada Day without the Mounties.

Or the pipers. It warms my partly-Scottish heart.

And then the floats begin.

The end of the parade is signalled by the emergency vehicles, sirens softly blaring.

The loudest applause seemed to go to the Search and Rescue because, when you live on the Coast, you know those guys save lives.

Happy Canada Day!
