2nd Annual Cultus Lake Community Day all about civic pride
Ladies from the Spirit Abreast group ride a trailer with their pink 1952 Ferguson tractor from the Atchelitz Museum. Below a youngster in the parade with his dad engages in some people watching.
he longest parade in the world is in Hanover, Germany and is 12 km long. The shortest is at Cultus Lake. But like the old adage says; it's not about how big it is, it's what you do with it.
Residents poured out of their quaint hobbit-like homes Saturday to watch and wave at those in the 2nd Annual Cultus Lake Community Day parade.
The day kicked off with a pancake breakfast first thing in the morning, put on by the volunteer firefighters.
This year, floats featured in the charming parade included a gigantic 16 foot paper mache salmon and Cultus Pygmy Sculpin made to scale from the Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Society (CLASS).
Also in the procession were the Cultus Lake Dragon Boat Club ladies who bobbed and weaved along the route underneath their Chinese dragon.
The community has Charlotte Hall & Carlton Toews to thank for their hard work organizing and facilitating the highly anticipated event that offers up a slice of small town BC.
