HISTORY OF GOLD CUP PARADE
Although Old Home Week has been running since 1905, the first Gold Cup parade took place in 1962. The event was founded by Bill Hancocks and Frank Acorn with the goal of reviving Old Home Week in Charlottetown. They wanted to give a boost to Prince Edward Island’s racing industry as it began to lose its appeal to spectators.
After those initial efforts to revive some local art, the popularity of the parade began to grow rapidly. The main business group that started the parade in 1986 decided to become a non-profit company and adopted the name “Charlottetown Parade Committee”.
Every year lots of volunteers get involved in the design and construction of floats, which is the main attraction and especially popular with thousands of children who enjoy waving their hands as they go. The Gold Cup Parade has become an important date on the Charlottetown people’s calendar, and with a lot of fun, it is also a huge hit to tourists.
