The Parade of the Swans is the official sign of spring in Canada. It takes place in the charming city of Stratford on the Avon River.
I wore white for the occasion, with a pop of red: sunglasses and sandals (first time wearing sandals this year!). White doubled-breasted hoodie is from Hudson’s Bay, white cargo pants from Spanner.
Every year the swans of Stratford march from their winter home, along the path to the scenic Avon River in Southern, Ontario. Crowds gather to watch these awesome birds strut by.
Led by the parade Marshal – Mr. Goose
The Stratford Pipers are heard for miles around and it is a family affair.
Although I’m not a swimmer–prefer to stay on the bank of the river–I love water.
My grandchildren enjoyed the day with lots of fun activities for children of all ages.
And with colourful crocuses bursting from the soil, yes, Spring has come to Canada!
