Paraders: I extended the parade route beyond the Events Field, where the judges will be. Please continue past all viewers and pull ahead to let those behind you finish. There are several empty driveways on Kincardine Road where floats and vehicles can turn around.
BTW, I’ve added road closures to Google Maps.
Marchers should line up on Kincardine Road, not Manse Hill Road. See the new map version below. The Kincardine Road lineup location should be safer than dodging traffic on Manse Hill Road. However please be careful of traffic.
Please check back for any additional updates.
Businesses, groups, clans, families, and individuals, Join our parade of marchers, vehicles, and floats on Saturday 19 August 2023: 9:30 AM–Kincardine Road, to Burns Hall, closes to through traffic. 10:00 AM–Line up on the south side of Kincardine Road at Burns Hall. 10:30 AM–Parade begins.
The parade is about 1k starting at Burns Hall. The Clan March should be about a third of a mile/half a kilometer.
Even if you haven’t signed up for the parade, come on up and we’ll slot you in 🙂
The Scotch Colony, New Brunswick, Canada, is located in the Atlantic Time Zone (Eastern Time Zone folks are an hour behind–that means if an event is listed at 11:00 AM Atlantic it is at 10:00 AM Eastern) So all you U.S. cousins: don’t be late 🙂
Caution: When driving to/from Upper Kintore to/from Kincardine, avoid the Bon Accord Cross Road. There are reports of flooding and washouts. (Google Maps seems to prefer this route.) Use Kintore Road instead.
Join us in the beautiful Scotch Colony to celebrate our 150th anniversary. Be sure to set aside the weekend of August 18th-20th for a trip to the colony, with events in Kincardine, Upper Kintore and Lower Kintore, New Brunswick. Stay tuned for a full schedule of events!
