Canada Day Parade on Granville Island

ReVision participated in the Canada Day Parade on Granville Island on Sunday. 
We were slotted behind the hilarious hockey guys on stilts and the Chinese lion dancers and their drum accompanyment.
Lorraine, Ron, Carl and Janet were decked out in our recycled gear.

Ron's bicycle hauled his rolling dog made from spent fire extinguishers (showing the fire extinguishers before and after), while Lorraine brought up the rear sporting her Queen Arachnea button and umbrella outfit.

The weather gods were with us.
