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.
