Petrolia planning Canada parade for first time in 15 years


The Town of Petrolia is planning a big party for Canada’s 150th birthday and for the first time in years, there will be a Canada Day Parade.
The town has three days of events planned for the Canada weekend including a concert on June 30.
There will also be music, kids games and food at Greenwood Park during Canada Day.
And at 1 pm, the downtown will come alive with a parade.
Laurissa Ellsworth, director of marketing for the town, says it has been at least 15 years since the town hosted a parade to mark Canada’s birthday.
The town is accepting applications for floats now.
There will also be the traditional fireworks at night.
On July 2, there will be a kids’s fun day which will include a fishing derby and the Central Lambton Optimists Rubber Duck Race.
