Prince George, B.C. – Today’s beautiful weather drew a decent sized crowd to this year’s May Day Parade in Prince George.
Sponsored by Elks Lodge 122, around 200 people lined the streets to see a series of floats, first responders, First Nations dancers and drummers and veterans wind their way downtown.
Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall said he was pleased to see the parade return after a one-year hiatus.
“I’m extremely pleased. The May Day parade was a staple in the community for decades and here we are,” he said. “And what’s the summer without a parade? That’s what it boils down to.”
Organizers decided to resurrect the event to coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations this year and to bring a little extra fun and spirit downtown.
THANKS for bringing the Parade Back.
I could not make it Sat. but it sure was a nice day for it.
See you next year. (hopefully)
It’s nice to see the parade back. It was a lovely day for a parade, and although it was a short one, I enjoyed it. One disappointment, I could not hear the Old Time Fiddlers, :( They were followed by a series of first responders & various emergency vehicles all blasting their sirens.
We’ve all heard sirens before, but there’s not near enough fiddle in our day to day.
