Port Moody plans parade to mark centennial

Who doesn't like a parade?

That's what organizers in the City of Arts are counting on, as Port Moody gets set to host the first parade in the community in four decades. As part of its 100th birthday, the city will host a centennial-themed parade on Saturday, June 22.

"I'm just absolutely thrilled. With the centennial, it's given us an opportunity to budget some money and get some grant money and hold a big parade," said Coun. Diana Dilworth, a member of the organizing committee.

She noted Port Moody is the only municipality in the Lower Mainland that doesn't have a community parade.

The parade will start at the Port Moody Recreation Centre at 11 a.m., and move along Ioco Road to Murray Street before winding down in Rocky Point Park. The entire route is about two kilometres long.

"It's a nice, straight flat route for the most part, and we're really encouraging everyone to come out to Murray Street and watch the parade," Dilworth said.

Organizers are hoping for roughly 100 entries - everything from floats and bands to community groups and clowns.
