The Port Moody Heritage Society had a great time participating in the Centennial Parade this past Saturday! The Port Moody Station Museum Staff and volunteers spent the day on Friday preparing  our float and want to say a big thank you to everyone who came out to help! We had Rebel Haunt Theatre join us in the parade and they came  all dressed up and smiling.  Everyone on the float was dressed in heritage costumes which delighted the crowds – the phrase “I love your hat!” was often heard. The highlight for the kids were the bubble machines that we had on our float. A great time was had by all!
