With a forecast of more rain, the expectation was that it would not be like previous years.  But when the parade started at noon, the sun came out and the rest of the day was typical July 1. The only negative was the beach which was still half covered with water.  But there were a lot of people in Cobourg so instead of the beach, they flocked to Victoria Park for the speeches and the booths, the Midway seemed busier than usual and the Rotary tent also seemed to be doing well.   The Parade was good although there were only the two local bands – the Concert Band and the Legion Pipes and Drums.  The video below shows the Parade, an edited version of the speeches, the beach and the harbour.

I’m not sure what the benefit is of long speeches – the only one I liked was Rob Franklin dressed as James Cockburn reading out the proclamation of the 1867 act which we are celebrating  this year.  (At 13:31 in the video).  Some actual history.

After the speeches, there was entertainment at the bandshell and the Lions had their beer tent.  The day was capped with Fireworks at 10:00pm – thousands watched including a big crowd on the West Beach.  Cobourg knows how to put on a party and the word is getting out.
