Edmonton Klondike Days Parade 1972

Ah, the good old days! Here is the Edmonton Klondike Days Parade in the year before I was born. I used to live in Edmonton, and remember when they changed their big fair from the Klondike Days to the Capital Ex. It was the end of an era, and the beginning of….well, I guess a new era. It’s always cool to look back at these old videos of what life was like oh so long ago, just after the dinosaurs died out and miniskirts became the fashion. Notice that no one is taking pictures of the parade with a smart phone, and the cars are made of metal? Times have sure changed.
