This parade welcomes all ages to walk, bike, stroller or skate the waterfront in colourful masks and costumes.

There will be family-friendly mask-making workshops before the event so you can bring your own hand-made mask and join the parade with a home-made wagon float, a decorated bicycle, or stroller.

We will meet up at the Kiwanis Bandshell parking area and parade to Lee Park. When the parade returns to the Bandshell there will be a day of performances with the International Drum and Dance Festival.

Ask for more information about a mask-making workshop at your school, faith group or social club and learn more about masks in many cultures.
