The High River Little Britches Parade is back after a two-year hiatus because of the pandemic.

Organizer Hank Leeferink is really looking forward to Saturday, May 21.

"We're going to have a lot of fun, I've talked to a lot of people and they're very excited about this, our theme this year will be a Salute to Young Farmers and Ranchers of the Area, and the Parade Marshals will be the 4-H Club of the Foothills and District," he says.

Leeferink says all the Calgary marching bands are expected to be there and it's hoped the Notre Dame Collegiate band will be in the parade as well.

He's also expecting the usual large contingent from the Shriners clubs around Alberta.

The High River Little Britches, Santa Claus Parade Facebook page will be up and running on March 31, with registration forms available there.

There's no cost to enter the parade.
