The parade was in town on Canada Day in North Rustico and thousands of people came out to see it. It was a wonderful morning to be out and enjoying Canada’s 150th birthday, with hot, sunny weather and a cooling breeze. Many parade-watchers arrived more than a hour earlier to grab the best viewing spots along the route. Even Star Wars characters showed up for the show. It was hard to imagine a better place to be on Prince Edward Island to mark Canada’s special day.
