What’s a Fair without a Parade?
This years parade will begin 11:00 am Thursday, July 27th 2017 and last about one hour.
As in previous years; parade entries will marshal at Lakeland Mall. The parade route will follow its traditional path. Starting at Lakeland Mall the parade will go along Railway Avenue turning right at 49 Street, then left at 50 Avenue where it will continue until 51 Street where it will turn south, returning to Railway Avenue. It will continue on this path, merging with 50 Avenue and ending near the Vermilion Health Care Centre.
