Review: Remembrance Day

Yesterday, 11th of November, several parades took place in different areas around Vancouver and in cities across Canada. It was Remembrance Day, so the parades were held to remember Canadian soldiers who died in battles during the First and Second World Wars, as well as wars in Korea, Afghanistan and Iraq. The biggest parade in Vancouver took place in the area around Victory Square, and of course we were there to have a look from the sidelines.

A lot of people met up to show their respect and support for both the veterans still alive and for those who died in battle. There was always something going on. It wasn’t just a parade; We could also hear the sounds of shots being fired from cannons,  we could see old 2nd World War aeroplanes flying overhead, poems were being read out loud… For sure this was an unforgettable experience.

Have a look at more pictures from the parade here.
