Once again this year, Ontario’s Most Beautiful Village will host the pomp and circumstance of the Eglinton & Caledon Horse and Hound parade, benefiting Groves Memorial Hospital and the Canadian Cancer Society.

This year we are pleased to report that McKeown’s Clydesdales will be on hand with their magnificent coach as well as “Chance and “Sammy,” two adorable miniature ponies will be on hand to help us collect your donations.

Rain or shine, the excitement begins at one o’clock in the afternoon, Sunday October 2nd, at Bissell Park (plan to arrive prior to 1pm) East Mill Street, where you can meet and mingle with the riders, horses and hounds. As well as witness the ceremonial cheque presentation to our benefactors.

At about 1:30pm, set against the spectacular autumn scenery of the village, up to 40 liveried riders and the frolicking hounds depart the park and take to the streets in this non-sporting event, collecting free-will donations as they go. There are amazing photo opportunities along the way.

After promenading through the streets, with a photo rest at Township of Centre Wellington's Municipal Offices (One MacDonald Square), the parade returns to the Mill Street Bistro at 15 East Mill Street for a Rider’s Reception, where you can mingle with the riders, purchase food and drink, and mingle with some horses and the famous frolicking hounds.

The Elora Horse and Hound parade has been actively raising funds to assist Groves Memorial Hospital and new this year, the Canadian Cancer Society. Last year our attendance was estimated to be 5000 people. To date, more than $20,000 has been raised to aid in the cause. We hope for an even larger attendance and an even more generous spirit as we take to the streets again this year with our cause!
