They had the bag pipes going all day, a fair off to the side, the highland games going on all day and so much more!
I had a table set up in efforts to fundraise for the organization, Free The Children. I offered face paint, cold refreshing water and pictures with Miss Teenage Nova Scotia all by donations.
This little girl sitting beside me in this photo is absolutely adorable! She asked to sit in the parade with me because her float plans didn’t work out, of course I wouldn’t refuse! She was a great help, I would wave and say “Happy Canada Day!” and she’d repeat me and wave in her tiny voice the same thing.
There was a huge crowd. It was the largest parade I have ever been to and so after awhile of us greeting people, she got a little restless and looked to me and said, “Katie, if you’re getting tired, I can take over!”. I thought it was so funny and cute of her. She was my little minnie me so that it is why you see her wearing my crown in the photo to the left.
I met some amazing people like our local MLA Terry Farrel and a local senior from the community which come to found out was familiar with the organization, Free The Children and donated Twenty dollars.
