We are excited to participate as a full unit in the 2019 Bedford Parade of Lights. We will be part of a tri-service contingent with the Sackville Sea Cadets and Navy League Cadets as well as the Bedford Air Cadets.

Our three bands will combine to form one mass band showing the strength of the cadet music program.

We will have some cadets participate in a tri-service color party and guard.

The remainder of our cadets will form one platoon carrying our corps banner.

All cadets will be in full dress uniform with cadet parkas (where available).  Cadet are also encouraged to wear festive hats like reindeer ears or santa hats and can wrap themselves in battery operated lights (can be found at the dollar store). Cadets will be provided glow sticks to carry.

All cadets will meet at DeWolf Park in Bedford, cadets must be dropped off between 4:30-4:45, after that time police will have the road blocked off and parents will not be able to drive their cadets down the road to the meeting point.

All cadets will be picked up a the Bedford Place Mall, cadets are NOT permitted to leave that pick up spot until picked up by their parent. After dropping off your cadet please proceed to the mall end of Bedford to ensure you are there as soon as the parade ends. There will be a lot of traffic so needing to drive up from DeWolfe Park won’t be practical.

2019 Remembrance day parade info

A quick note on Remembrance Day

Look here to see where you wear your poppy on your uniform –

The Parade
945 am in Full uniform – Beaverbank-Kinsac Fire Department – turn right up the road just before it to the school at the top of the hill (on the left). That is where we will be meeting.

You will be wearing your full uniform with a poppy. Dress for the weather – you can wear your cadet toque (if you have it) or your beret with your uniform, your cadet winter jacket (if you have it) , and black mittens or gloves. If you do not have a cadet winter jacket you can wear your civilian winter jacket over your uniform.

If your uniform has not come in by then you will wear appropriate civilian clothes with a poppy – no bright colors.

Please keep in mind to dress for the weather. You can wear long johns under your uniform – do not constrict your blood flow by wearing tight constricting clothes under your uniform. Wool socks are a must in your parade boots to keep your feet warm – if you don’t have any go see supply.

The band will play. Make sure you bring your instrument and music.

Parents please stay at the ceremony until the cadets are done. Usually the ceremony ends around 11:20.

The parade goes on rain, snow or shine.
