It’s a part of K-Days that’s as important as the fair itself—a tradition that has brought millions of smiles to children and adults alike over the past generations. Every year the K-Days Parade sets the 10-day event in motion with a sea of beautiful floats, giant balloons, amazing performers, loveable mascots and real life animals.
This past May, we witnessed one of the most dramatic evacuations in our nation’s history–forever cementing the relationship between Edmonton and Fort McMurray. Many watched as nearly 90,000 residents of Fort McMurray evacuated their homes with only a moment’s notice. During this time of need, several heroes stood up and showed us all how to be #AlbertaStrong.
To celebrate their bravery and self-sacrifice, Fire Chiefs Darby Allen and Ken Block will lead the Edmonton Fire Department, other First Responders and Mayors Melissa Blake and Don Iveson as this year’s official K-Days Parade Marshals.
