What does Canada Day mean to me? For over 20 years our family has celebrated Canada Day in the small community of Airdrie. Airdrie holds a small town parade on July 1st and over the years our family has either been on the side lines watching the parade or have participated by entering a float, riding horses or hooking up miniature horses to a wagon. Canada Day has left me with some amazing memories of when my children were young sitting on the side lines, to them being teenagers, riding horses when they were part of the Windy Ridge Riding Club where my son rode carrying the Canada Flag. The best memory (so far) is just this past Canada Day, our family entered a float and a team of miniature horses that had four generations participating. It was a very proud moment for our family as not every day do you have four generations together (Great Grandfather, Grandfather, Son and two Grandchildren) and even better when it is on Canada Day!
