Kinsmen seeking more entrants for annual Ladysmith Days parade

Ladysmith Days theme is “Seaside Celebration” for 2019 Kinsmen parade

It’s a “Seaside Celebration” this year! That’s the theme for the communities annual summer party – Ladysmith Days – and it’s the theme for the Saturday morning kick-off parade.

The 2019 edition of the Kinsmen Ladysmith Days Parade will be on Saturday, August 3 starting at 10:00am. The Kinsmen are seeking parade entrants.

“So far this year the response to the entry emails sent out has been very slow,” Kinsmen spokesman Duck Paterson said. “We hope that businesses, organizations and individuals still have them and will mail them in soon as the parade is the kick off to Ladysmith’s great summer event.”

If any one has not received an entry form they can be downloaded from the Kinsmen website or picked up at the Chamber of Commerce office on Roberts St. Paterson asked that folks fill them out and mail them back to the club at P.O. Box 324, Ladysmith, B.C. V9G 1A2.

“The theme is for the entire weekend celebration and we hope that groups in the parade follow it, but it’s not mandatory. The important part is that folks participate in the parade anyway they want… just being part of the parade is what makes it exciting for the spectators,” Paterson said.

“The parade is meant to be as much fun for the participants as it is for the spectators”
