Dawson Creek, Festivals & Events

The annual Canada Day Parade is a staple in the South Peace festivals that Dawson Creek holds every year. Hosted by the village of Pouce Coupe, the Parade brings out hundreds of people from the community to enjoy the floats and the candy that usually accompanies them!
This year was once again a success with plenty of people out enjoying the warm (albeit a little windy) weather. As you can see, the Visitor Centre float made the local newspaper with their spoof of Baywatch display.
In addition to the floats, candy, and festive flags and toys, there is a BBQ after the parade and the day concludes with a pretty impressive firework display. Looking forward to next year's Canada Day already!
