Since it's the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812, there was a float honouring Laura Secord and the Glengarry Fencibles, along with a PVC cannon!
The winning float in the parade was the Greyhound Long Haul bus...
...powered by the passengers! Check out the legs under the bus. Richard called it the Fred Flintstone bus.
There were all sorts of horses in all shapes and sizes. These had riders in Scottish gear.
This mini-horse looks sad now and I suppose maybe he should have gotten second prize. Or third?
I loved this burro and gave him the "special horse prize" even though he's not a horse. (That's what you get when you ask a city girl to judge horses!)
Here's Richard along with Wendy who was covering the parade for The News, and Jean who is the Dalkeith correspondent.
