OUTING – The 50th Annual Hyack Festival and Parade, New Westminster

In the words of the Association; “The annual Hyack International Parade is our province’s largest family-oriented parade with over 120 entries from throughout BC, Washington, and Oregon. You won’t want to miss the high-energy, colourful and entertaining procession of floats, marching bands, community groups, mascots, performance artists, and more that fill the streets of New Westminster.  It’s a “can’t miss” event for the entire family.”

The Parade route starts from the staging area near NWSS at 8th Avenue and 6th Street. The Route goes down 6th Street, past the food truck and market area on Uptown, down to Queen’s Avenue. It turn left at the Armouries and proceeds along Queen’s Avenue to 1st Street, then up 1st Street to the entrance to Queen’s Park.
