Community Parade!

This years parade theme is super heroes and heroines, comic or real life. The Callander Parade Committee’s first priority is to ensure the safety of all parade

  • Each towed parade entry is required to have two safety people walking with them; one safety person on either side of the entry, throughout the duration of the parade.
  • Parade participants are not allowed to throw candy along the parade route.
  • Children on floats must be supervised by an adult.
  • Parade participants on motorized vehicles must abide by regulations under the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario. For reference, see:
  • No smoking while on a float or walking with a float.
  • Parade Committee members will accompany their respective parade sections along the parade route.
  • Parade participants are not permitted to mount and dismount the floats during the parade.
  • In case of emergency, please stop the float and notify the closest parade attendant. Allow the Fire Department/Emergency Medical Services to attend to the issue. Do not proceed until given the OK to do so.
  • Do not park or drive on the grass, as it poses a safety concern and damages the grass

Floats are to meet at Sunbeam Bungalows between 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Only pre-registered floats will be eligible for the "Best Float Award"
