1200 Commercial Drive
Vancouver, British Columbia

After a one-year hiatus, Parade returned re-envisioned and reinvigorated. The theme last year was:

Peeking Through the Veil...a Celebration of the Cycle of Life.

The site and the procession route were reversed from previous years. We began in the all weather field at William and Cotton where altars, shrines, fire dancers and an ancestral dome helped us prepare for our journey. Then, musical guides appeared, beckoning us to travel down the river that flows to the other side. The sounds of the drum gave us courage and guided us along the way. The journey ended in Grandview Park where fire keepers illuminated our psyches and we were filled with the delight of life as we danced, danced, danced in the street!!!
