The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce proudly organizes and funds the Canada Day parade in Drumheller each year. Our Canada Day parade celebration has always been FREE to enter, and we welcome all businesses, groups and individuals to register.
Theme for the 2018 Canada Day Parade, as chosen by an online poll: THE GREAT OUTDOORS
* While travelling along the route, participants must keep up with the float in front of them. No stopping is allowed along the route to ensure even flow from the first float to the last without any gaps or a disruption in flow of parade traffic.
* For Safety Purposes, candy and/or promotional items MUST BE handed out. DO NOT throw items from your vehicle. As per our insurance requirements, throwing of candy or items is NOT allowed.
*As this is a public event, please ensure that any music played from floats is appropriate for all ages.
* NO WATERGUNS. No Peanuts.
*Any animals prior to or during the parade being seen as acting erratically will be asked to exit the parade route.
* Large commercial vehicles (ie. semi-trucks, long trailers, farm equipment) will be placed at the end of the parade (lining up on 17th Street) regardless of category.
*Please note: Our parade insurance does not cover livestock. As such, if your parade entry will include any livestock (ie. horses, buffalo, cows, etc.) proof of Liability Insurance must be received by the Chamber of Commerce office at least 1 week prior to the event. Failure to do so will result in the entry being denied admittance into the parade.
Registration is required for the parade. Forms are available for pickup at the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce or the World's Largest Dinosaur & Visitor Information Centre, or you can download the form here.
