Alt text: Blackburn Funfair Parade

Who doesn’t like a parade?

Our parade theme this year is Healthcare Heroes in honour of all those who have helped our community stay healthy after these past few COVID years, so come out and celebrate our Parade.

We would love to see all the parade supporters sporting any type of healthcare attire to cheer on our parade participants. Our organising team is hard at work to make this a great parade. The parade always brings out a big crowd of  Friends, Neighbors, Businesses, all showing their local pride along the 45-minute parade route.

Please bring a non-perishable food donation that will be picked up by volunteers with Metro shopping carts who will be walking on either side of the parade route. All items will be donated to our local Blackburn Hamlet Food Bank.
