Starting from the corner of West Georgia and Broughton at 7:00pm, the Canada Day Parade will head over to Burrard and turn left, ending around West Pender. It will feature over 60 entries with floats, performers, and community groups along with the BC Lions and Fin from the Vancouver Canucks.

The parade will be a great way to transition from Canada Day activities at Canada Place (from 10:00am to 6:00pm) to the fireworks display in Coal Harbour starting at 10:30pm.
