Participants in the 2019 parade.

by Anna Van Adrichem Rochon

The Rotary Canada Day parade will be taking place again this July 1 in Kemptville at 4 pm. The theme this year is “imagine.” Every group, club, association, business, or group of friends is welcome to take part by entering a float – it can be small, large, or anything in between. Just imagine the fun you will have waving as you pass through the community on the parade route.

Businesses will be noticed for their community involvement. There is no cost to participate. The final route will be about 4 km long. Comfortable footwear is important.

The very popular Shriners will be coming to participate with us. Look for their mini planes and motorcycles and large stuffed animals. The parade’s timing will allow people to take part in Canada Day festivities in various places in North Grenville before coming to town for the parade.

If you would like to take part in the parade, contact for parade route and safety rules.
