Dear Parade Applicant:

Canada is turning 150!
Hyack’s 46th annual International Parade holds a special place in history as it coincides with the 150th year of Canada’s confederation. In honour of this historic milestone, Hyack has decided on a theme that not only reflects the unique past of New Westminster, but also resonates with the history of the entire Pacific Northwest
First Nations. First Cities.
Telling Our Story. Together.
Hyack’s mission in 2017 is to tell the story of New Westminster in a way that integrates and celebrates the history and culture of the first peoples of the land. Hyack is a Chinook word meaning “go fast,” and long before Canada was born, from Portland to the Yukon, the “Chinook Jargon” was an essential and widely spoken language. This shared heritage unites our communities in a special way that predates the border at the 49th parallel.
Hyack look's forward to welcoming you to the Royal City in May.
