Be part of the parade celebration!

The Whoop-Up Days Parade is the kick-off to Lethbridge & District Exhibition’s annual Whoop-Up Days on August 23.
Parade Route
  • Parade Route: Beginning at Park Place Mall, the traditional parade route travels along 3rd Avenue and 13th Street N, ending at the Galbraith Elementary School.
  • Time: 9 a.m.
The Whoop-Up Days parade is a long standing tradition, attended by thousands, as the city streets are lined with kids of all ages who are excited to take in the sights of a local parade. Whoop-Up Days celebrates the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of summer. This year's parade will celebrate 125 years of our history! We invited businesses and organizations to create a parade entry that speaks to the history and origins of your local business.
This year our focus is on celebrating our 125th Anniversary–looking back on the rich history that Lethbridge & District Exhibition has grown through, and on the next 125 years ahead as we create new beginnings that add to the vibrancy of our city. This year, our theme will be 125 years through history–if your business or organization has been around as long as we have, we would be honoured to showcase not only the history of the city, but also the businesses and programs that made it what it is today! The parade is a community-based event designed to encourage families and visitors to celebrate our city and kick off our annual Whoop-Up Days.
