Yellowknifers didn’t let a few dark clouds rain on their parade Monday morning.

Big crowds braved the bad weather for the city’s annual Canada Day Parade, which kicked off at 11 a.m. Flag-waving parade-watchers donned red and white colours – and raincoats – as floats, firetrucks and more rolled down Franklin Avenue.
