The 2011 Annual Vankleek Hill Horse and Buggy Parade

the vankleek hill horse and buggy parade

This weekend is the annual Vankleek Hill Horse and Buggy Parade, which is quickly followed by a Strawberry Social… which may or may not involve the ritual sacrificing of horses. I don’t know, I don’t plan these things.

It all starts at 1.30pm on Sunday, July 3. The route is always packed with people, but there are always great sight lines. Once you see a horse you like, just tell one of the parade officials, and they’ll make sure you get a plate full at the Strawberry Social afterwards. I’m pretty sure that’s how it works. I do know there’s always leftovers.

…the photo is actually from the 2009 parade. Beautiful horse. He was delicious… seriously, am I the only one who remembers this?

    • We do try to keep the standards high. I mean, if you go through all the trouble of arranging a parade, you should keep the quality of the sacrifices high. Which is why we stopped using clowns.
