For the first time, the Victoria Swiss Society participated in the annual Victoria Day Parade with a spectacular float in celebration of the centennial. The excitement was there. See for yourself at Congratulations to the Victoria Swiss Society for winning the parade’s Best Walking Group Award!

From the tourism Victoria website:

Celebrate Victoria Day in B.C.’s capital with the 115th consecutive Island Farms Victoria Day Parade. This is Victoria’s largest parade event; complete with marching bands, floats, clowns & more.

If you wish to watch the whole parade it will take at least 3 hours to pass by. The parade starts from Mayfair Mall at 9:00 am & proceeds along Douglas Street, finishing at the intersection of Douglas & Humboldt in the downtown core.
