Get ready for Agassiz’s most popular parade of the year.

Saturday’s Fall Fair festivities start each year with a parade down Agassiz’s main streets.

Floats made by families, businesses and organizations are on display in the parade, often incorporating the Fall Fair’s theme. This year, expect to see a few floats featuring man’s best friend for the Year of the Dog.

The parade route starts on Cheam Avenue, with judging beginning at 9 a.m. at AESS for parade participants.

At 10 a.m. sharp, the parade will begin, heading west on Cheam Avenue before it turns onto Pioneer Avenue.

The parade will continue down Pioneer Avenue until it reaches the fairground gates, located at 6800 Pioneer Ave.

Free shuttle:

Once again, Prospera Credit Union will be providing a free shuttle for those who want to leave their cars behind.

Free parking and pick up will be available at the bus stop on Aberdeen, St. Anthony’s of Padua Catholic Church and the Agassiz United Church.

Shuttles are available Saturday only, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
