2022 Canada Day Parade Invite

 In Community

June 7th, 2022

Open Letter to the Communities of the Columbia Valley,

The Windermere District Legion along with the District of Invermere are sponsoring the Canada Day Parade for the 2022 year. The theme of the day is “Community Love.” The Canada Day event reflects the HEARTS, spirit, and experience of a community. Canada Day festivities are put on as acts of love, service and to celebrate diversity in our community.

While there are many things to celebrate with pride about Canada, we acknowledge the actions that have taken place in this country have done immense harm to Indigenous peoples spanning across generations. Through this event and other actions, we hope to create a safe space for everyone to come together to celebrate how fortunate we are to live in a country that is growing, evolving, and learning from our past history. We would like to have the support of all the Columbia Valley to help us celebrate this great nation.
We invite you to participate in the parade by providing a float, marchers, riders, etc. (whatever your business, club or group is willing to enter). For safety concerns, we ask that all handouts are hand delivered not thrown from the floats to keep the youth from running into the roadway.

To help with the parade entries we ask that you register your entry, via email to invermerecanadadayparade@gmail.com alerting us as to youth, club, group, business name, estimated number of persons participating.

We will form up on 9th Avenue beside Pothole Park at 10:00 a.m. Please attend the Registration Table by the Washroom building to register your entry. The parade will start from 5A Street at 11:00 a.m. through the main street of Invermere, to 13th St and finishing at the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena.
We look forward to your participation celebrating our community.
