Falkland Parade Cancelled
A hundred year tradition is coming to an end.
There is no longer a Falkland Stampede Parade. Parade Organizer Jackie Pipe says there are a couple of issues; a lack of volunteers, but also the ministry doesn't want them to close Highway 97 through Falkland so in 2019 there will not be a parade. She says if volunteers step forward that could change, but it can't be on the highway.
The rest of the event is still a go for the May Long weekend.
