Ancaster Heritage Days


During Ancaster’s Heritage Days, a week set aside to celebrate the community, Saturday was dedicated to the annual heritage parade.

With the sun out and a lot of spectators, the floats made their way from Wilson and Academy St. Finishing the parade at Todd St..

The festival started back in 1979 when a local shop owner believed that residents didn’t know each other well enough.

I think the smaller communities that are absorbed by the larger ones should try to keep their identity.
