Diamond Valley Parade Day
Join us for an exciting day of festivities at Diamond Valley Parade Day on Saturday, June 3rd!
Start your day with a delicious pancake breakfast hosted by the staff and students of Oilfields High School from 8 am to 10 am.
At 9am, the roads along the parade route are closed or rerouted, and the Parade begins at 10am, making a large loop around the community of Black Diamond. Watch lively showbands, musical performances, floats from local community groups and businesses, as well as horseback riders and horse-drawn wagons.
After the Parade, head over to Millennium Park in former Turner Valley from 11am to 3pm for even more excitement. Enjoy bounce houses, a petting zoo, face painting, a dunk tank, artisan market, Lion's Club barbecue, and a dance party. It's a perfect opportunity to spend time with family and friends, have fun in the sun, and make lasting memories.
In addition to the Parade and Diamond Valley Day at Millennium Park, other events are taking place around town, including the annual Sheep River Library Book Sale, the St. George's Anglican Church Quiche and Bake Sale, and the Sheep Creek Arts Council Bake Sale and Quilt Show.
Don't miss out on the 55th year of the Diamond Valley Parade, a cherished tradition that showcases the community's spirit and creativity. Join us for a day filled with joy and entertainment.
