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.
* 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, please HAND OUT candy and/or promotional items. Do not throw items from your vehicle. Under NO circumstances will the throwing of candy or items be allowed.
* 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, trailers, farm equipment) will be placed at the end of the parade 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.

Parade theme: In honor of Canada's 150th birthday, this year's parade theme is "Canadiana." What is Canadiana? Canadiana encompasses all the lovely things that make us Canadian. The things, ideas, or activities distinctive of Canada or Canadians, especially works of literature and other cultural products. A fun example would be Miss Canada, Chanel Beckenlehne (Miss Universe 2016) and her hockey stick dress. Sports, beavers, natural resources, beautiful landscapes, maple syrup or multiculturalism- what does being Canadian mean to you?
