Fun N’ Games is the theme for this year’s Daybreak Rotary Stampede Parade, says  Erik Zwiers, one of five parade marshals organizing the event this year.

He says the parade committee is asking people to focus on creating  entries representing unique recreational opportunities and staying active in the Cariboo.

Preparations for the 2013 parade on Saturday, June 29 are well underway.

“Right now the committees are getting together to plan and organize the parade, and we’re looking for individuals and organizations to step up and help,” Zwiers explains.

“We’re starting to look for sponsorships, we’re getting ready to choose an honourary parade marshall and we’re re-vamping our website.”

Zwiers notes he is one of five parade marshals, adding that one is dedicated to the equine component of the event.

“The rest of us keep everything else running smoothly,” Zwiers says.

The parade route will be the same as last year, and volunteer recruitment has begun.

“There is a wide range of activities and tasks for volunteers and we always welcome new faces,” Zwiers says. “We’re also looking for an organization who can supply a group of volunteers for things like security for the barricades.”
