Vibrant Culture Award for Canada Day Parade Float 2013

The Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo invites all cultural groups located in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo to register your floats or walking groups for the YMM Canada Day Culture Parade.

ATB has been very gracious to offer a new addition to the awards, an all-new 2013 Vibrant Culture Award. In collaboration with Events Wood Buffalo and Expressionz Canada, the Multicultural Association introduces the newest award category for the 2013 YMM Canada Day parade, the Vibrant Culture Award sponsored by ATB! The Vibrant Culture Award will be given out to the best float in the culture category. Along with a snazzy trophy, all winners will also receive a $500 donation to the non-profit of their choice!

Our partners simply make our game more fun and exciting. “Our theme for this year’s Canada Day Parade is, ‘Make This Place Your Home’. These cultures are what make our region a national treasure and we want to showcase how proud we are to have them here,” says David Whitelock, Executive Director, Events Wood Buffalo.

For all cultural groups, parade registration will be open till June 21, and the registration form can be found online at, or by calling up The Multicultural Association at 780 791 5186. To be nominated for the ATB Vibrant Culture Award, all groups must be a member of the Multicultural Association.

The 2013 Canada Day Pancake Breakfast on July 1 in partnership with Suncor begins at 8:30 AM at the Boys’ and Girls’ Club on Riedel Street. A multicultural cuisine breakfast will be served until 11AM at the nominal cost of $2.

The YMM Canada Day Culture Parade is a part of the 2013 Legacy Dodge YMM Canada Day Parade which will begin at 11 AM on July 1, 2013. Starting on Riedel Street, the parade will travel along Franklin Avenue and turn off on Morrison Street. Float staging and sign in will take place between 8-10 AM.
