Harrison hosts pet parade

Puppies and more invited to celebrate Canada Day in Harrison Hot Springs

Do you have a dashing Daschund, pretty parrot or handsome horse?

You may want to show him or her off, in the first annual Harrison Hot Springs Canada Day Pet Parade.

It’s the newest addition to the July 1 festivities, and Erin Goosen at Tourism Harrison is hoping to see plenty of pets on parade.

“It’s open to any pets, big or small,” she said. There will be prizes for the best dressed pet, the best dressed pet owner, best in show, and a few more categories that will depend upon the entries.

Best of all, there’s no entrance fee.

Anyone wanting to participate in the parade is asked to email info@tourismharrison.com, or call the office at 604-796-5581. The parade will marshall at 3 p.m. at St. Alice Hall on Esplanade.
