They came, they watched, and they ate candy.

The Canada Day Parade had Drumhellerites shining and showing their best trucks, cars and floats.

"So, we had about 76 entries in the parade this year. The theme was the great outdoors, so we saw a lot of tents, a lot of trees, and outdoorsy camping kind of floats so that was great to see," said Chamber Services Coordinator Marley Henneigh.

While every float offered something special to the parade, there were a few that received special recognition from this year's judging committee.

"We have few repeat winners in there and a few new too, so that was good to see. We noticed a lot of people watching the parade this year so that is great. And the weather held off for the parade, maybe not so much for the other stuff but it didn't rain on our parade this year," exclaimed Henneigh.

The floats were put into six categories, and ranked in first, second and third place.

"We made it through another parade again. It is always a little bit chaotic to get everything going but it always turns out pretty well. That is all you can ask for," concluded Henneigh.

The parade winners are as follows:
