Sam Steele Days Parade 2012Posted: June 18, 2012
The City of Cranbrook was a beehive of activity this past weekend as Sam Steele Days unfolded at venues throughout the city June 14-17.
Perhaps the biggest annual event in terms of sheer numbers turning out is the annual Sam Steele Days Parade and this year featured one of the longest parades yet.
First St. and Baker St. were lined up three to four deep in some places as residents staked favourite spots to watch the parade, which had a new twist this year – men in high heels raising awareness about abuse and violence. Sixteen brave souls scuffed and painfully wobbled their way along the one-mile long parade route, wearing bright red high heeled shoes.
As usual, the parade featured a wide variety of floats, from local businesses and organizations, as well as a number of visiting floats. Regionally, Kimberley, Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford were well represented, as was Whitefish, Montana. Additionally, there were floats from throughout B.C., including from Penticton, Trail, Summerland, Castlegar, Lytton and more.
If you missed the parade, or if you’d like to see it through our eyes, please take a moment and tour our catalogue of images from Sam Steele Days Parade 2012. Click images to enlarge and to begin self-directed slide show.
E-KNOW will be posting a separate photo gallery of other Sam Steele Days images later today.
