A skies began to open up at the end of the wreath-laying ceremony during the Remembrance Day parade and events in Sidney on Sunday, Nov. 11.
Veterans, serving members of the Canadian Forces, dignitaries, citizens and youth gathered in downtown Sidney to witness the annual Nov. 11 parade from the Mary Winspear Centre, down Beacon Avenue, ending in front of Sidney town hall and the memorial cenotaph. It was a cool morning, but plenty of people lined the streets to applaud those who have served, and those who serve still.
The rain held off until near the end of the ceremony, and as the parade turned and marched up Sidney Avenue, heading back to the Winspear Centre marshaling area.
