Events are celebrated worldwide with parades. Canada and Ontario are no exceptions.
The annual Rose Parade in Welland, Ontario, was again a spectacular event. This year it was dedicated to the celebration of the 150 th. anniversary of our city which is also called "The Rose City".
Naturally you cannot compare it with the world famous carnival parades in South America or Europe, but if you are in Ontario and have a chance to see such a parade, please do so.
Our "antique house" is placed direct on the route of the parade and I had only to move a chair and my camera equipment to the patio to watch everything.
Please watch also our video which I had taken with an old camera. Consider it as a part of our history.
The beginning of the Rose Parade
I think it is not necessary to comment all pictures.
The names of many participating organizations will not tell you too much if you come from overseas or you are not from our area.
However, you see how much efforts were spent to make especially this parade to an unforgettable event.
Many people from the Niagara Region came to see this annual event of our city.
Many pretty young ladies were waving to the crowd from their limousines. I assume that they participated in a contest for the "Rose Queen". There was not a single one which would not have deserved this title. In order to avoid any trouble I only show one typical picture.
Also politicians were greeting their voters and even no-voters.
It was really a great event and the weather cooperated also nicely to make it successful.
