The observance marked the 99th anniversary of the armistice agreement that ended World War I on Nov. 11, 1918.

Many community groups joined in the parade including the Pathfinders, Scouts, cadets and the Kelowna Chiefs junior hockey team.

The ceremony lament was performed by bagpiper Jim Watt while bugler Sarah McIntyre played Reveille.
