Timmins was the scene of another wonderful and successful parade. The weather cooperated, the crowds came out and the event was held without incident. Parade organizers were pleased at the level of participation from the community, as well as the number of eager volunteers who came out to ensure that the event was safe and well organized.
The parade judges were impressed with the range of entries: “Clearly there is a lot of creativity and a lot of hard work that goes into the entries”. They were happy to witness the wonderful spirit of the participants. “The kids were so energetic and dynamic! It was great to see so many young people in the parade, whether they were so many young people in the parade, whether they were with a non-profit, a cadet corps, or a recreational group. What fantastic sprit!”
