Send your pictures in, if you were able to take in the modified festivities on Saturday

Pitt Meadows Day could not be held this year, due to crowd limitations mandated around the coronavirus.

But, the parade, one of the largest components of the festival, went ahead – albeit not as normal.

It was simply a drive-by, through the centre of the city, and involved firefighters, politicians, and some city staff.
