Aldergrove Parade has grown from the Aldergrove Festival
Days Parade ...to
the Fair Parade (1980's to 2017) to the ...Aldergrove
Canada Day Parade (2018+)
year the Parade in Aldergrove is starting 9:30am AND
is under a new 'covid-19' format
PARADE ROUTE is OVER six kilometres long ...so PLENTY of room
to keep 'physically distanced'
What does a Covid-aware parade look like?
Traditionally, Aldergrove Parades have been slow moving and short – about
half a mile and half an hour.
year, Aldergrove’s Canada day parade will be eight times
longer – that is over 6 kilometres (4 miles)- and will loop
around Aldergrove from 264th St to Station Road by way of 32nd
Ave then onto 28th/29th Ave.
of it as the Parade coming to you instead of you needing to get
to the Parade!
vehicles will be integrated into the normal traffic flow so the
total route will still take about half an hour for the
watch the Parade, please stay safe by keeping to the sidewalks.
There is over 40,000 ft of sidewalk along the route, so
with our normal crowd of 5,000 spectators, that works out at
space per person so ...there is lots of room for ‘physical
distancing’ for everyone!
course family groups will bunch up, so the actual room will be
even more than that between family groups.
get ready, you will therefore need:
1. Facemasks - strongly recommended (to help keep everyone
safe as you walk to a vacant spot).
2. Lots of red – be it clothes, ribbons or flags!
than SIX KILOMETRES LONG (4 miles) ...there is lots of room
for ‘physical distancing’ for everyone!
CANADA DAY ~ Aldergrove!
