While there were a lot of beautiful horses and wagons in the 2015 Daybreak Rotary Stampede Parade it went off without a proverbial hitch, says parade marshal Ron Malmas. He says there were 92 enties and there was a wonderful turnout of spectators.
“It was an excellent, excellent time for all of us, no hickups anywhere,” Malmas says.
“And we love the fact that the Springhouse Crowbirds flew over to start the parade.”
In one of its efforts to streamline the parade organization this year, Malmas says the six judges only chose three top winners whose entries best illustrated the theme Be a Gift to the World: A Tribute to Volunteers. “We thank everyone for participating.”
The Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H Club garnered second place and Thompson Rivers University North won third. Floats from Horsefly Nursery and Taseko Mines received honourable mention.
