The celebrations have grown to such a magnitude that we shut down King Street and King’s Square – the busiest streets in Uptown Saint John and the only street of its kind in North America– to create a right of way for the Parade. Our traditional people parade always signifies the beginning of our day’s festivities, and we have expanded it to include bands and a few key vehicles. There will be dignitaries (Mayor & Council, Provincial Ministers and MLA’s, Member of Parliament – Wayne Long), Saint John Police Honour Guard, Sea Cadets, Ambulance New Brunswick, Cherry Brook Zoo, Chinese Cultural Association, SJMNRC, Saint John Shriners Club, and members from various other local charities and organizations. Our parade marshal for 2017 will be Norm McFarlane, former Mayor of Saint John and long-time champion of the arts in our region.
