Thanks everyone for a wonderful 92nd Warriors' Day Parade which was held on August 17, 2013. We were particularly blessed in having so many WWII and Korean War Veterans present at the parade. The crowds were huge, the weather exceptional and those who were in the parade looked fantastic. Our volunteers worked so hard and we appreciate everything they do year round. And thanks to the CNE for your support and commitment to this incredible 92 year Canadian tradition. It means a great deal to many people. So again, many thanks and now let us begin to plan for the 2014 Parade which will be held on Saturday, August 16, 2014.
Join us and support your Veterans and
Canadian Armed Forces!
In 2013 The Warriors' Day Parade will celebrate the 200th Anniversary of The Battle of York and the 60th Anniversary of The Korean War Armistice. We proudly remember the contributions and sacrifices made by Canadians during the Korean War. We also proudly join the many organizations and communities throughout Canada in celebration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, a very important chapter in Canada's history. The grounds upon which our Parade has taken place for the past 92 years played a very important part in the 1812 conflict particularly in 1813 during the Battle of York.
Thousands of volunteers, including Veterans, members of Canada's Armed Forces, contingents from allied nations and citizens continue to make The Warriors' Day Parade possible year after year. The Canadian National Exhibition have demonstrated exceptional commitment to The Warriors' Day Parade over the last 92 years. Thank you to everyone for your support and enouragement.
