Tug Boat Parade - part 1

video

Because of the length of the video of the Tugboat Parade I have divided it into two parts. I will also put each part in a separate posting.

Tugboats are an important part of Owen Sound's history. Russel Brothers made them. The two tugboats that were on the former one dollar Canadian bill were made here in Owen Sound.

Although the weather was not the greatest for this special event as part of Owen Sound Heritage Days co-sponsored by Billy Bishop House and Museum and the Owen Sound & Marine Rail Museum, people gathered on both sides of the harbour to watch the parade.

  1. Janet,

    Lovely picture of the one tug, despite the weather, but didn't see any others.
