Easter Sunday would not be complete without the Easter Day Parade with the vintage vehicles and Easter bonnets in
. We had a perfect day for that to celebrate the parade’s 40th anniversary. The Kamloops chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada held it’s first Easter parade in 1972 and has been doing it ever since. Kamloops

The Gizeh Shriners Keystone Kops, based on the old silent movie routine, added their color to the parade with a prisoner in their midst. They drove their 1934 Chevy truck, the Kop Kar in the parade but I missed seeing that. They have been promoting the image of Shrinedom with their award winning antics since 1988 when they first formed the unit.

Most of these cars are owned by members of the Kamloops Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada. You can learn more about the club and their objectives if you check out their webpage.
|Kamloops Mounted Patrol of Kamloops, BC|
The Kamloops Mounted Patrol was there to spend time with anyone that was interested in seeing and petting the horses. Rick Wanless first founded the group in 1992 to serve the community at public events and has been doing it ever since. There is never a lack of interest for the horses and their contribution to events such as the Easter parade is always appreciated.
