The Parade Low Down

May 21, 2012

GP Stompede Parade We are so excited for the annual Grande Prairie Stompede Showdown Parade happening today at 3 pm! The parade starts at Hillside School and will wind through downtown ending at the Grande Prairie Regional College.

This is a great event saluting Grande Prairie’s heritage and an opportunity for some great family fun. The We Go North team wants you to make the most of this year’s parade so here are some parade tips:

  • Early bird gets the worm – Being right on time with parades usually gets you a standing room only spot. Plan ahead and go early.
  • If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes – Today’s forecast calls for variable cloudiness, so pack the northern essentials – blanket, umbrella, and a good parka... we mean jacket.
  • Oh, hotdog man! – Besides the parade candy there are usually not a ton of snack options, bring some noshables for the little ones. Otherwise, you may find yourself watching the parade from the 7-11 parking lot while you eat.

Lastly take lots of pictures and submit them on the We Go North Facebook page!
