The Callbecks Home Hardware and Home Furniture and Appliances Store Summerside Lobster Carnival Parade is a celebration of community spirit! 

Saturday, July 8, 2023 at 12 noon


With anticipation, people line the parade route to see the creativity and uniqueness of the entries. Businesses, organizations, and individuals put their best foot forward to capture the audience’s attention, as they celebrate being part of community.
Carnival organizers give a very special thanks to Callbecks Home Hardware for owning the parade and sponsoring some great prizes. Even though they can’t claim the prize, the Callbecks staff work together as a proud team to present a great float.


Now that is community spirit!
