Silly Summer Parades and Canada Day fun

We went to the Silly Summer Parade on Whyte Ave this year on Canada Day. Here are a few photos.

 A Knight in shining...goalie pads?

Norwegian trolls




And from Brazil...

from Brazil we go to the dogs

to balloons

the Punjabi Cultural Society

to very trusting souls

I think s/he was a bee?

Heart & stroke Foundations "Big Bike"

The Hallow e'en Festival people reminding us that summer is short.


We missed the first part of the parade, looking for a place to park. The secondary reason for going was to check out a shoe store, sadly it was closed.

Hope everyone had a great celebration no matter what you did. I might post again with fireworks later.

Looks like it was a lot of fun! I didn't do anything to celebrate, other than enjoy the day.

That looks like one hell of a good time Reb, wish I were there to see it. I especially like the Brazil, dogs and Punjabi series!

WTF is with the knight in goalie pads though? Lol.

Jay said...

All parades should have Samba dancers.

Also, love the diversity of the parade.

Reb said...

Sis, that is about all we did, sadly, I forgot about the fireworks and went to bed ;)

Leah thanks, it was fun.

Scott thanks. I have no idea about the goalie pads...there were others in hockey jerseys with armoured legs. Silly was the theme.

Jay, I knew you would love that. Diversity is all a part of who we are :)

I loved seeing the sea of red & white! And my goodness, that is a trusting soul indeed! YIKES!

Reb said...

Karen, thanks. I agree, I don't know that I would ever be that trusting.
