INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE sees people in all parts of the world, come together to create practical acts of peace on a shared date – September 21st. Last year in Nanaimo, more than 70 people braved the heavy rain to be seen and show their support for peace by participating in a Peace Day Parade ‐ Youtube video of Peace Day Parade 2011
The Immigrant Welcome Centre along with other local agencies invites everyone in our community to join the 2nd ANNUAL PEACE DAY PARADE! The foot parade, winding along the sidewalks from Old City Quarter down to the Nanaimo Waterfront, will be a lively event to celebrate peace. Everyone is welcome and participants are encouraged to bring signs, placards and flags, to wear multicultural dress, play musical instruments & sing, dress up or paint faces, and to bring flowers to share and cast to the sea. Positive atmosphere, no negative messages and no politics please.
