Call for floats for PRWF parade

The “Parade Committee” is now taking entry forms for floats, displays and participants! We welcome local businesses, community groups, sports teams, school groups, and more -from anywhere within the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Reserve Region! Entries can be as elaborate as a marine-themed decorated float complete with dance party or as simple as a hand-painted banner with members of your community or sports group carrying it.

Uniforms and costumes, flags and banners encouraged.

Children’s “pets and dolls” section at the front of the Parade! Could we possibly be the community with more people IN the parade than watching the parade? Please fill out the entry form and drop off to the District of Tofino office by 4:00 pm on Friday March 14th. You MUST be ready to go in front of Wickaninnish Community School at 10 am on Saturday March 15th.

Please call me at 250-266-5229 or e-mail me with questions.

Sincerely, Josie Osborne
