The 2012 festival features official opening ceremonies, an Antique Fair, the Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery Salute, May Day celebrations, a Multicultural Festival with music and food, and the Hyack International Parade with over 130 entires throughout BC and the Pacific Northwest.
The May Day celebration dates back to 1870 where the Hyacks, aka The New Westminster Fire Department back then, used a surrogate 21 gun salute since no cannons were available in the early colony. Instead they used an Anvil Battery Salute. Hyack is Chinook Jargon for “fast” or “quick”. Since 1971, the Hyack Festival Association has organized a range of celebratory events to help preserve the city’s history and traditions as well as promote positive community spirit and involvement. There will be affordable, multi-cultural and inter-generational activities for youth, adults and seniors. This year’s festival is sure to be a colorful week of fun so don’t miss the float!
