Get your float on

Now is the time to start planning your float for the Golden City Days parade.

It’s still July, but not too soon to start planning your float for the Golden City Days parade on September 12.

You can walk, ride or drive the parade route, and any group is welcome to enter, whether it be a company, family or non-profit. Since Golden City Days is an event meant to celebrate Rossland’s heritage as an 1890s gold-mining town, parade marchers are encouraged to wear their historical best.

Deadline for entries is September 4, but the parade’s coordinator Beverley Rintoul encourages people to sign up early.

Past entries have included the city council riding on a historic fire truck from the museum, riders on horseback, and the search and rescue team sporting all their gear.

“The people who are in the parade make the parade,” says Rintoul. “Wear a funny hat, walk in the parade, bring your dog.”
