Organization Sponsor: Bay Roberts, Town
This activity was for people of all ages. It was a parade that took place in the evening and everyone that participated received a glow stick or flashing button. The parade lasted 20 minutes with over 1000 people taking part. Taking into account that our population is only 5200, that makes 20% of the population getting involved in a physical activity.
