Slowly but surely, my pageant sisters  trickled in and we finally had a chance reunite. I was so glad to have this opportunity to catch up with my good friends especially since we would be going to Toronto to represent BC as a team in a little over a11217583_10153052595911545_5164474401834052692_n month.

Although we had arrived at 4 and the parade would start at 7, the BC candidates utilized the time wisely by decorating the sponsor cars with Canada inspired accessories as well as putting our sponsors advertisements on the cars. Donning our sashes and crowns, each one of us beamed with pride as we sat in the cars amidst the curious bystanders who gawked at us while we prepared. Finally, after adjusting the volume of the stereo and the mics we were done with preparing the logistical side of our float.

At 7 when the parade had finally started I was seated in the front car sponsored by Open Road Richmond and Open Road Lexus accompanied with Miss Teenage Vancouver and Miss Teenage Burnaby. Behind was Miss Teenage Okanagan and Miss Teena11709526_10153043401821545_6221561278098708330_nge British Columbia who were seated in a vintage inspired vehicle with beautiful white veneer.

The parade was such a blast! In addition to waving the Canadian flags, blowing kisses and saying hello the candidates cheered and wished all Vancouverites a Happy Canada Day. What an memorable  experience!
