A fly over of a vintage Spitfire was announced days before the parade started. During the parade two antique airplanes appeared suddenly. Unfortunately, I could not take a better picture of them.
Most Canadians are very proud of their military and they support their troops.
However, not all of them approve the engagements in Iraq or Afghanistan. So don't get fooled by the stickers you see on many cars.
Young people can join the "Air Cadets", the "Army Cadets" or the "Sea Cadets". They become familiarized with the tradition of the different branches of the services, participate in many challenging activities and learn valuable skills for their later life. Whenever I meet a cadet I can see that they love what they are doing.
These musicians played also a piece which I knew from a German TV show.
Most of the participants were unknown to me but they all were friendly and added lots of flavor to the parade. Not everything was pure advertising which is nice.
Clowns, some of them on stilts, women in pretty costumes, lovely restored antique cars - just watch the pictures.
I did not participate in any of the events which took place after the parade.
Lots of drumming, marching and Scottish bands from all over the region and even from the USA. I will try to compose a brief video later.
Unfortunately, many people did not pay any attention and were always running by in front of my camera. I will try to eliminate them from the video and not to reward them with a free Internet appearance.
Blues and Jazz are becoming more popular
Scottish groups are always an attraction. I loved to visit the highland games in Fort Erie. Unfortunately, the city canceled them and the "Ontario Welcome Centre" in Fort Erie also welcomes you empty handed - that means it is almost completely deserted. What a shame and waste of money!
