The annual Pitt Meadows Day Parade included 76 floats and 1,300 participants Saturday.
Even bigger things are expected next year, though, as the City of Pitt Meadows will celebrate its 100th anniversary.
“We’ll probably have a parade that’s themed on heritage, so we’ll be encouraging people to pick a decade or pick an activity and give it a heritage twist,” said Rick Higgs, president of the Pitt Meadows Day Society.
He is also hoping to have pre-fireworks entertainment at Pitt Meadows Athletic Park.
“Hopefully we can have somewhere between two to four acres that would be available in the field adjacent to the double ball diamonds where the fireworks go off so that people can come, toss out a blanket and enjoy some music before the fireworks show.”
Higgs encourages anyone interested to volunteering to email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
