Join the parade

Participate in the 2014 Golden City Days Parade on Saturday, September 6.

Please accept this invitation to participate in the 2014 Golden City Days Parade on Saturday, September 6.

You may enter a float, a vehicle, a marching or walking group, play music, dance, entertain, and display your skills or products – whatever you do best.

Bikes, baby buggies, and boards are welcome. Families, classmates, or work groups are encouraged to join in the fun.

Golden City Days is the family celebration of Rossland’s heritage as an 1890s gold mining town. You are invited to dress in 1890s-1920s style, so dig out old hats, vests, long skirts, miners’ beards, and gamblin’ duds.

We ask entries to make lots of noise to add to the festive spirit of the parade. Bring your CDs or iPod to play on the vehicle stereo, sing songs, or make music.

There are no entry fees, and each participant will receive a parade ribbon. As well, there will be special Golden City Days tattoos for younger entrants.

After the parade, light refreshments (one mini sub, drink, and cake slice per person attending) and cake will be served to registered entrants only in Pioneer Park downtown.

In order to receive tickets to the reception you must note on the parade entry form the number of persons on your float who will attend the reception.

To enter, and for more information, please email director@rossland.bclibrary.ca or call 250.362.7611. Entry deadline is August 29.
