The RCMP unlocked with Gray Cup on Jasper Avenue on Saturday, November 24, 2012.
Stampeders, Redblacks … Roughriders? Jasper Avenue On Saturday, football fans across the country, the Gray Cup-Santa Claus collective parade, took center stage.
Ottawa Redblacks and Calgary Stampeders will play on Sunday's highest trophy in Canada. But the jerseys and fan-gear rides in the parade made it difficult for the club to take them to the stadium.
Edmonton Eskimo enthusiasts were in force, as Saskatchewan Roughriders was a green concentration of green.
"It only flows through your blood," said Roughriders fan Lance Hackewich, who walked along the parade along with his family, wearing a stem of corn stalks.
His family came to Saskatchewan to attend. Gris Cup has gone to numerous festivals over the years, even though their beloved Roughriders play.
"And, to some extent, it's just a contingent of horsemen who end up in the parade," added Linda Hackewich.
Then a group of horsemen passed by. The Hackewich family left the sidewalk and entered.
The rest of the crowds were crowded with the help of Toronto Argonauts, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and B.C. Lions
Of course, Ottawa and Calgary supporters also played for their teammate.
Stampeders fan Celeste Awe went through a storm of snow last night to get here. The CN Gray Cup Parade was a long list of the Gray Cup activities, and planned for her husband.
"We'll get everything," he said.
Often, it's a real fun of the game: parties such as CN Gray's Parade and pre-games, Terry Jones's parade, directed by Longmedia Sports columnist.
Many families prepared some strange weather, gathered children's toys and wrapped blankets.
"Maybe it could be worse," said Edmonton Transit driver Sharon Gilbert, squeezing his parka on his face. Zayla and Angel Boswell came with her daughters.
Gilbert said he would drive a bus on Sunday in the game, so on Saturday, he gave the party and girls take a chance fun.
But there was no glance at Gray Cup for everybody; Mayra Maziv had only six years for Santa Claus.
"I want the little mermaid Barbie," said Mayra, asking her a list of holiday wishes when she came to the cork, waiting for a pale red to arrive.
This year, the Golden Deaths of the city entered the Gray Cup festivals, with Mr Claus joining on the Jasper Avenue procession on Saturday.
The Grey Cup festival is running all day at 9:30 a.m. Jasper Avenue and 97 on the street. Check out zip line, artificial ski slopes, huge slip-on hikes and free games and prizes with booths.
