Peters Bros. Grand Parade
Saturday, August 10, 2013
Welcome to the largest parade in the BC Interior. Young and old, everybody loves a parade and we have everything that makes a parade special: floats from across BC and Washington State, marching bands, dancers, gymnasts, musicians, clubs, associations and clowns.
The parade begins at 10 am at Main Street and Eckhart Avenue. It proceeds north on Main Street to Lakeshore Drive, west along Lakeshore Drive to the S.S. Sicamous, around the corner and then disbands at the Rose Garden car park.
The Peters Bros Construction Grand Parade application form can now be completed and submitted online. Please click here for the application form and here for a copy of the rules.
The cross streets are barricaded to prevent accidents with parade participants and volunteers will be at every intersection on the parade route to ensure traffic is properly routed. Also, parking is not permitted anywhere on the parade route, vehicles found on the parade route will be towed to the closest municipal parking lot.
Why not get downtown early and enjoy a Pancake Breakfast courtesy of the Penticton Elks Club. The Elks feed hundreds of visitors at the Elks Hall on Ellis Street between 7 am and 11 am. Every guest is welcomed and special to the Elks who offer this opportunity to enjoy a pancake breakfast at Penticton Peach Festival every year.
This is a big parade, lasting about an hour and a half, so bring your sunscreen, a hat, a chair and find a spot to enjoy it all.
