We're still a few months away from the Summer starting festival of Seafest, but those days will fly by fast as participants from Prince Rupert and afar make their plans for participating in the highlight event of Seafest the Saturday parade.
Last week, Prince Rupert's Special Events Society issued the first call for applications for the popular parade, a chance for early birds to secure their spot and start their planning.
The theme for Seafest 2023 is "Under the Sea" so we may see a few Pineapples and Sponge Bob References we imagine as the parade gets closer.
But really the options are limitless for those with a creative view of how to work the them for their float presentation this year.
You can sign up for the parade here, the Parade entry form also providing for more information on the application process.
The 45th celebration of Seafest takes place from June 9-11 this year.
To keep up with the Seafest Planning for 2023 follow the Special Events Society Social Media Stream.
As well, the volunteer base of the Society can always use some extra hands at Seafest and for their other festivals in Prince Rupert, you can explore the opportunities to help out here.
