Ogopogo caught the eye of Royalty at the Calgary Stampede. The city’s parade float, which features a likeness of the legendary Okanagan Lake monster, was named the third best float in the municipal section of the Stampede Parade held last Friday.
The parade was watched by about 425,000 people, including Prince William and his wife Catherine.
The city float generated big cheers all along the parade route.
The Kelowna float has won an award at every parade it has attended this year. Next up for the float will be to participate July 31 in the White Rock Spirit of the Sea Festival Parade.
