HEEELLLLOOOO Riptide Families!!!!

Who wants to be in a groooovvvyyyy parade??!!!!?!! 

I do! I do!

This is our chance to showcase our totally awesome team to our great community!!!!

The Nanaimo Heritage Festival parade is being held Sunday May 20th, 2018. Starting at 1pm sharp dowtown Nanaimo at Victoria Crescent, the parade travels along Commercial street and makes its' way down to Maffeo Sutton Park, where it completes. 

This year's theme is the 60's - Peace, Love and Revolution! ( I wanted the 80's but that will have to wait for another year)

We have a really cool parent building us a stellar small float to lead us down the parade route. The rest of us fly swimmers will be grooving our way down Commercial Street!!! 

Swimmers who sign up to participate in the parade will meet on Victoria Avenue, starting at 11:30 am. We will have face painting, bubbles, tattoos (temporary ones), t-shirts and maybe some cool headbands for swimmers wanting to participate in this event. Please dress according the weather. More information will be emailed out next week as the event approaches. 

We are looking for parent volunteers to help chaperone that day.

We are also looking for any National and Provincial age swimmers to help with planning, face painting, painting the float, who are looking for community involvement credits towards graduation to join the fun. If you would like to participate please email Adriana Prlic @  


Thank you again for all your support this year!
