We Luv a Parade!!

Every year, Charlottetown celebrates "Old Home Week", a week of livestock shows, midway & the Gold Cup Parade!! The parade boasts 90 entrants (not all picture here), but below are a few of our favourites!

No parade would be complete without the Shriners Keystone Cops paddy wagon!



Or clowns!



The PEI College of Piping - they sound amazing!





One of the awesome floats!



Ma & Pa Kettle!



Spot, the Wonder Dog! Woof! (the dachshies personal fav)





The biggest squeakie toys ever!!








A Charlottetown city police officer, making sure the parade route ran smoothly. This wonderful officer assisted when a dog was left in a parked van at the mall! (I posted about it on my blog last May).



Some of PEI's finest RCMP officers - in full dress uniform (these uniforms are worn on special occassions - not worn daily).

Are they not awesome?

Hi Wienies
Parades look like lots of fun. We loved the giant squeakie toys and would like to sink our teeth into them.
Love Ruby & Penny
