Natal Day: Our town's biggest yearly celebration

[caption id="attachment_1164" align="alignleft" width="224" caption="Natal Day Parade"][/caption] Natal Day is the 'birthday ' of Nova Scotia and so in our little town is an even bigger celebration than Canada Day. The festivities start on Friday continuing through until Monday where the big event is the parade. This year's parade had many fire trucks and princesses (Scallop Princess, Princess Dragon Fly were just a couple) and while I am not complaining, boasted of far less candy than our little Alberta town's annual parade.

The one that had Aneliese especially excited was one who had a pair of texas long horns on his helmet. Impressive."][/caption]
