Swiss100Canada @ Victoria Day Parade

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 http://youtu.be/OFAgN1aqNE4. 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.
