Several community members pulled out all the stops during last year's dog parade during Canada Day in Harrison Hot Springs.

Celebrating Canada with a four-legged friend

Community members and their pets can get in the Canadian spirit during Harrison Hot Springs pet parade on July 1.

Woof, eh?

On July 1, or Canada Day, local owners and their four-legged friends can take part in celebrating their national heritage, together.

During the Canada Day pet parade in Harrison Hot Springs, owners and their pets can dress-up in costumes varying from sublime to ridiculous – while showcasing the national flag and red and white colours.

Parade organizer Debbie Hansen hopes community members get creative with their outfits.

“Let your crazy side loose and dress up your pet to celebrate Canada Day 2016,” she said.

Registration for the parade begins at 10 a.m. at St. Alice Hall in Harrison, where judges will also take their first look at the array of costumes.

The parade will begin at 10:30 a.m., heading east on Esplanade to the Harrison Lake plaza. The parade will be followed by judging and awarding of prizes and certificates for the top outfits.
