The Hyack Parade is back and better than ever. The pomp and circumstance returns this Saturday, May 26th at 11 am.

The renowned Hyack International Parade is British Columbia’s largest parade with over 120 entries from throughout BC and the Pacific Northwest. It is an inclusive and diverse participatory experience with multicultural and memorable entries from all over BC and the Pacific Northwest. Join us at 11:00 am Saturday, May 26th!

Businesses, schools, municipalities, charitable organizations, arts groups and other community stakeholders participate in the parade every year with their own marching bands, performing groups, entertainers, and floats often created by their own volunteers.
