News - Leading the Parade, Canada Day 2008


The LFD appeared on the Kingston Whig Standard's front page as they did in the Bath Canada Day Parade
After returning home from a weekend in Colonial Williamsburg participating in 'Under the Redcoat,' The Loyalist Fifes and Drums woke the next day to travel to local Bath for one of the region's biggest Canada Day Events. The Bath Canada Day Parade is popular for its quality and location. A short drive from Kingston, Bath is small, friendly and on-the-water with extra Canada Day attractions from stage musicians at a fair to ice cream on the corner. Also close to the Corps' Adolphustown home base, the area is rich with loyalist history.

The Loyalist Fifes and Drums led the parade with a bang. Or rather, several. A small group of muskets accompanied the Drums, who played proudly at their heels. Freshly polished and practiced, The Drums shone as brightly as their brass.

The relatively cool temperatures (a full ten degrees cooler than the weekend the Drums attended) meant marching in heavy wool uniforms in the sun felt nearly chilly. Visitors in shorts and cotton T-shirts snapped pictures and offered their sympathy.

The next day saw red-and-white striped uniforms and drummers in perfect step marching across the front page of the Kingston Whig Standard.
