Westerner Days kicked off with the annual parade this past Wednesday. It’s always great to see the streets lined up with so many people celebrating groups, organizations and local businesses.
Living a block from the parade route has its advantages: we had a great spot to watch the hour long parade.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police opening up the parade.
Lots of marching bands in this year’s parade. The Red Deer Royals put on a great show as always.
These guys were doing sprints and having a great time on the big bike supporting the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
The Samson Cree Nation had one of the best float in he parade. The dance performances were amazing.
This I had never seen before: riding a bull in a parade!
The kids loved this one for different reasons but the Dumb & Dumber inspired float was great.
My favourite picture of the parade: a simple handshake.
Lots of vintage cars in the parade. Loved this one and how they were dressed in character.
