#ygkChallenge: Red & White People Parade

Red & White People Parade, Canada Day, Kingston, OntarioWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Take part in the Red and White people parade. Admittedly, I’m probably the last person who would have ever thought that they would end up in a parade. Over the past few years, the Red and White people parade has made its way down Princess Street, ending up at City Hall where elected officials tell us how awesome it is to be Canadian. For me, the Red and White people parade perfectly kicks everything off on Canada Day. So whether you walk the rest of the red and white-clad folks, or simply cheer them on, be sure not to miss this fun part of our local Canada Day celebrations!

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s ask, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.

Thanks to Garry Knight for supplying the photo associated with this week’s ygkchallenge.
