Description

Dear Parade Applicant:

The New Westminster Hyack Festival Association is pleased to invite you to participate in the 2017 Hyack International Parade. The parade is scheduled for Saturday, May 27th, 2017 beginning at 11 a.m. in the Royal City of New Westminster, BC.

Canada is turning 150!

Hyacks 46th annual International Parade holds a special place in history as it coincides with the 150th year of Canadas 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.

Hyacks 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.

Best Regards,

New Westminster Hyack Festival Association
