Brock University loves a parade.
More than 200 volunteers, including students, staff, Brock sports teams and the Department of Student Life and Community Experience, marched in last Saturday’s Grande Parade, the flagship event of the Niagara Wine Festival.
The group walked the route through downtown St. Catharines alongside a Badger spirit-themed float. The float included a new inflatable badger and room for the band Figure Four, featuring Michael Chess, marketing production co-ordinator for the Centre for the Arts, to play to the masses.
Brock President Jack Lightstone, Brian Hutchings, Vice-President of Finance and Administration, Kim Meade, Vice Provost and Associate Vice-President of Student Services, and Joe Robertson, board chairman also took part in the parade.
Brock’s participation in the Grande Parade was co-ordinated by Amanda Hemingway in the President’s office and Curtis Gadula, manager of off-campus living and neighbourhood relations.
