Silver Leaves – Part of Kincardine’s Reunion Parade
The turnout that these reunion event generates in Ontario’s “up country” towns is always impressive.
This summer’s Kincardine Reunion on the Civic Holiday long weekend was no exception.
The Kincardine “Old boy and girls” were back on Queen Street in large numbers for the Saturday morning Reunion Parade. in some spots along the street the crowd was six to seven people deep.
The Sliver Leaves Brass Ensemble lead by Drum Major Bob “Potsy” Moseley, was an early entry in the parade which took just over an hour and a half to pass.
They proved to be an exception to the musical entries which were in the parade. There were several floats with C&W bands performing as the flatbeds moved through the town’s business section. And ….. reflecting Kincardine’s strong Scottish heritage, the dominant marching / musical entries were pipe bands from neighbouring, lake communities from as far away as Forest – down Sarnia way.
The Silver Leaves were well received by the appreciative crowd.
