Rainmaker Parade Float Entry

Once again it is time to think about the Annual Rainmaker Rodeo Parade coming up on Saturday, May 27, 2017 After a FREE, hearty pancake breakfast at St. Albert City Hall, why not join the fun for one of St .Albert’s most anticipated events of the year; The Rainmaker Rodeo Parade. Do you sometimes wonder why St. Albert is often referred to as a modern city with a small town heart? During the Rainmaker Parade, adults often reminisce of childhood parades gone by because many of our St. Albert businesses and organizations continue to put exceptional work and energy into the parade floats they create for this parade plus, many of the Rainmaker entries still throw candies to the children who line the parade route. Rain or shine hundreds of people will line the streets with friends, neighbours and visitors to watch the 2017 Kinsmen Rainmaker Rodeo Parade. With close to 120 entries each year mark your calendars and grab the kids, cause you don’t wanna miss this!


Have a float, want to be in our the Parade. Or are you returning from last year. We are looking forward to another successful parade to celebrate the City’s birthday and the rodeo. Also for this year only Canada’s 150TH  birthday party theme can be used for the parade.

We noted in our records that many of you have entered previous parades and we are hopeful this year will be no exception. As well, we will be sending our invitations to others in our community and beyond who have not previously taken part in our Parade.

Attached below is a Parade Entry Form and the Parade Information Letter. If you wish to participate, we ask that you fill out the form and return it via e-mail to parade@stalbertkin.ca or via mail to (Rainmaker Rodeo Entry, 32 Annette Crescent, St. Albert, T8N 2Z7) or drop it off at the Gate Avenue Service Garage just west of the St. Albert Trail on Gate Avenue. Hours at Gate Avenue Service are Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. Attention: Al Sweet

We look forward to seeing you and/or your group on Saturday, May 27th. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at 780-458-9542. Please register early as it is very helpful in organizing the parade.
