The application deadline for entry into the 2014 Gold Cup parade has been extended to Friday, Aug. 8.
Dora the Explorer will march in the parade as the children’s entertainment star and the Fathers of Confederation are the parade marshals. The theme this year is Celebrating 150 Years of the 1864 Conference.
Organizers are also still looking for volunteer banner carriers to walk in the parade. Any children aged 10 to 15 years old can apply online at www.goldcupparade.ca.
Look in the insert in today’s paper for more about the parade and other Old Home Week events.
