Annual Labour Day Parade

JM&A was proud to join ATU 279 in this year’s Labour Day Parade.  The parade began at City Hall and proceeded through downtown to McNabb Park where the Ottawa District Labour Council held its annual Labour Day picnic.  The ODLC once again  put on a great, and completely free, event for the community with lots of food, live music, pony rides, face painting, etc.  The sun surprised everyone by showing up in full force and a great time was had by all.
