The Ramses Shriners Spring Ceremonial Parade takes place in Downtown Sudbury June 14.

It's the first time the parade has been held in Sudbury in nearly a quarter-century.


“It's fun for kids of all ages,” Al Burns, president of the Sudbury Shrine Club, told Northern Life last month.

“One float looks like the Maid of the Mist, and that's from Niagara Falls. We have another one that looks like an actual train. We have Viking ships coming up, and oriental bands and clowns and mini cars.”

He said he thinks there will be a big turnout for the parade, which starts at 1 p.m., as it coincides with Downtown Rotary Blues for Food. The parade will last about an hour and a half and will include 45 floats.
