Tradition celebrates great community

Each year I look forward to the first Saturday in June.

It’s a day where we gather and welcome visitors to celebrate all that is positive about living in this great community.

The sense of community runs all along the parade route and settles in at Harris Road Park. The faces you see and the people you meet all share in that experience and show just how proud we are of Pitt Meadows.

Our dedicated volunteers have worked hard to maintain the day’s wonderful traditions: the crowning of Miss Pitt Meadows; the annual softball challenge; the museum and Hoffmann Garage; the BBQ and fireworks.

It’s that tradition and sense of who we are that makes us special.

Despite growth and progress, we haven’t forgotten our roots.

On behalf of my council colleagues, I hope that you have a safe and enjoyable weekend and keep the Pitt Meadows Day experience with you throughout the year.
