Everyone Loves a parade

One half of town is in it, the other half watches June 3 at Yarrow Days

The parade begins at 10am sharp. But don't forget breakfast first at the reformed church.


t’s been said that nowhere but in a small town do people know what you’re going to do even before you do it.  So on Saturday, everyone knows they'll be headed to Yarrow and get parked on a lawn chair Yarrow Central for the annual parade.


Yarrow is one of those exceedingly rare places where time seems to have stood still, offering glimpses to a storied past with the heritage buildings and down-to-earth people.


Yarrow Days is an annual celebration of small town living. The entire town is involved. One half is in it, and the other half watches it. It's always kicked off with a free pancake breakfast at the Yarrow Canadian Reformed Church. After the parade, everyone schmoozes in Pioneer Park over a BBQ lunch and music. There’s games, arts and crafts booths, vendors, a playground and skate park.


There isn't any other place to be next Saturday!
