Freedom of the City Parade
June 4, 2016
Barrie City Hall and Downtown Barrie
The Mayor of the City of Barrie has granted permission for Canadian Forces Borden to commemorate the centennial of CFB Borden by exercising its Freedom of the City of Barrie. The Freedom of the City is an ancient honour granted to military organizations, allowing them the privilege to march into the city "with drums beating, colours flying, and bayonets fixed". Members of CFB Borden will halt in front of Barrie City Hall for a short ceremony. This event will celebrate the continued trust and friendship between the community of Barrie and the members of the Canadian Armed Forces serving at CFB Borden.
