    was wondering about the date of sidney’s Christmas parade. Past years it has been on a different night than downtown victoria. As many of the floats are the same how can both be on Nov 29 ?

    Yes, Victoria decided to move their parade to our date this year. We still have most of our regular participants registered and will go ahead as scheduled.
