Local Hero Contest

Honorary K-Days Parade Marshals

Northlands is looking for outstanding citizens who have gone above and beyond to make the Capital Region a better place to live, work and play.

These individuals are the local heroes that live amongst us—those who actively better our community, and don’t get the recognition they deserve.

If you know someone who fits both this description and the below criteria we want you to nominate them for a chance to become one of four honorary parade marshals in the 2017 K-Days Parade. In addition, they will also receive $2000 towards the cause of their choice* and four (4) Ride-All-Day Passes for 2017 K-Days.

*Must be a registered charity or not-for-profit.
