Teddy Bear Parade leaves Victoria Park, Kincardine, Saturday morning
There were toy bears and animals of every size and a multitude of children dressed as bears and many other costumes for Kincardine's annual Teddy Bear Parade, at Victoria Park, Saturday morning.
Sponsored by the Municipality of Kincardine, the event saw about 225 children (plus their bears and adults) gather at the park.
Following the antique Kincardine fire truck, they marched north along Princes Street, west along Lambton Street, and back along Queen Street to Victoria Park, where the children were awarded prizes including T-shirts, drinking boxes and smarties, compliments of the municipality.
For the second year in a row, the weather was ideal. Only once in the history of the Teddy Bear Parade has it been postponed due to rain.
