In my opinion, Montreal really knows how to throw a party! This year's Canada Day Parade was no exception. There were close to 50,000 in attendance with strong representation from many of the city's ethnic communities. No need for big bands or flashy floats, this latter-day "coureur de bois" helped to set the mood. His comical antics, banjo music and unforgettable canoe costume were highlights of the event for all the kids. They had a great time!
In the coming days, I will be posting a few more photos of other participants in the parade. Stay tuned.
