K Days Parade

Paris and I watched the K Days Parade the other day. I have never been to K Days, but I hear it has been going through an identity crisis, and has undergone several name changes. I know it is a big fair, but I wasn’t able to figure out what makes it different from other fairs by the parade.

We had planned to park near 105 Street and watch the parade from there, but construction and lack of parking moved us to Churchill Square where we were able to take in Taste of Edmonton as well.

After the parade we cooled our feet in the fountain in front of City Hall. My favourite fountain goer was a young girl with an umbrella – she seemed to be having the most fun.
