Pride Parade 2016

Saturday June 25th was the Pride Parade in Whitehorse and YuKonstruct was pleased to participate for the second year in a row.

YuKonstruct and (co)space’s contribution to the parade was a wonderfully whimsical float with rainbows, unicorns, truffula trees, bright colours, bubbles, and bikes! After winning “best float” in last years parade, YuKonstruct had a reputation to uphold!

A lot of awesome volunteer hours went into building the float and having fun, colourful, enthusiastic bubble blowers ride with us in the parade. THANK YOU to everyone that came out!

Next up: Canada Day! For anyone interested in joining our float for the parade, we will be re-decorating and riding down the streets with moose instead of unicorns and red and white replacing the rainbows. Here’s more info on the Canada Day Parade. You can also email questions to [email protected]

Parades! YuKonstruct at Pride and Canada Day

Two parades just days apart? Of course we had to join in on the fun and build a float!

YuKonstruct won first place for our bubble-tastic float in the Pride parade on June 27, 2015.  Just three days later,  we redecorated the trailer and giant bubble machine in patriotic colours and participated in the Canada Day parade.

Huge thanks to all the volunteers who helped build the bubble machine and decorate the float, and everyone who blew bubbles in the parades. Special mention should go to Seamus, Angela and their whole family for offering up their truck and trailer as well as all their parade float expertise.

Curious about how we built that amazing bubble machine? The full step-by-step instructions are now on Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/id/Giant-Bubble-Machine/

Thank you Andrew and Peter for the fantastic parade photos!
