Esquimalt’s Buccaneer Days parade planning underway

Municipality's 100th anniversary the theme of this year's festivities

Dust off your pirate hats or your historical costumes and fill out your parade entry form to be part of Esquimalt’s Buccaneer Days parade, June 9.

The Buccaneer Days weekend extravaganza June 8, 9 and 10 promises to be extra special this year, as the township celebrates 100 years as an incorporated municipality. Parade participants are encouraged to wear period costumes, for which some prizes will be awarded.

Those who gather along the parade route to watch the fun roll by are also welcome to wear circa-1912 outfits.

Parade entry forms are available at, or at the Esquimalt municipal hall, 1229 Esquimalt Rd.; Esquimalt Recreation Centre, 527 Fraser St.; or the Archie Browning Sports Centre, 1151 Esquimalt Rd.

For parade application details, call Buccaneer Days committee co-chair Bob McKie at 250-385-0503.
