The Cowichan Valley Shriners love parades!


We feel it wouldn’t be a parade with out the Shriners participating with their Parade Vehicles or Clown’s in their various costumes.


Each year the Cowichan Valley Shrine Club participates with their Fire Truck in the local Parades on Vancouver Island starting in May with the Nanaimo Heritage Day Parade, the Victoria Day Parade. In June we participate in the Lake Days Parade, Chemainus Summer Fest Parade followed by the Duncan Cowichan Summer Festival Parade in July. We follow in August with the Ladysmith Celebration Days Parade and finally close the year with the Ladysmith Festival of Lights Parade. Please go to our Event Calendar for dates and more parade informatin.
