Bath Canada Day Parade Award Winners

The Bath Canada Parade Starts at 1pm on July 1st

It moves down Main Street to Church Street and ends at the Bath Public School  about 2 pm.

Traffic will be diverted around the Village starting at 12 noon to clear streets for the parade.

For easiest access to parking throughout the day, take Highway 2, turn south at

County Road 7 (Church Street) and watch for the Event Parking sign as you come past Loyalist Blvd.

The free Shuttle Bus will take you down to the corner of Church and Main in the heart of the Village.

 

Happy Canada Day!

If you and you family are thinking of taking part in this year’s parade, here are some suggestions

1. Your entry doesn’t have to be elaborate. Gather up the kids on their bikes, put the little one in a stroller, wear your red and white and walk the route from the corner of Country Club Drive to Bath School.

2. Make a banner with your family’s name to carry  in the parade. Did you know that in the late 70’s and early 80’s the slogan for Bath’s Canada Day celebration was Having a Ball in Bath? Quite by coincidence, the Loyalist Residents Association came up with the same theme for their parade entries and used it for a couple of years.

3. Make a sign for each side of the car, get some flags from the Welcome Booth in Centennial Park and join in.

4. Combine your entry with another family  – related or not.

5. If you want to do something more elaborate, that’s fine too.  A float might highlight the family business, a hobby or talent your family shares, or portray individuals from different generations. This could be a tie-in to life in Bath over the past 150 years.   Let your imagination take flight and have fun!
