Everybody loves a parade, don’t they?

Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m., the annual parade which kicks-off the Queen City Ex will be held. Because of continuing construction in downtown Regina, the parade route will skirt the downtown as it did last year.

The parade starts at the intersection of Dewdney Ave. and Cameron St. and will travel east from there through the Warehouse District to Broad St. From there, it will head south to Broadway Ave., ending up as it usually does at the Tartan Curling Club.

As for the above picture, it’s not actually from the Queen City Ex parade. But there’s a certain media outlet in Regina that’s currently in negotiations with Saskatchewan Roughrider mascot Gainer the Gopher to borrow his mobile burrow so that we — I mean, they, can have a float in the parade too.

How cool would that be?
