Downtown Vancouver’s Canada Day Parade cancelled for 2018

The Parade in 2017 for the Canada 150 celebrations.

This July 1st, the streets of downtown Vancouver won’t be filled with floats or lined with crowds waving miniature red and white maple leaf flags as the Canada Day parade is cancelled going forward.

Citing rising costs, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority, which hosts the parade, made the decision to cancel the procession instead choosing to focus on the events at Canada Place and the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has run the parade since its start in 2009.
