    STORY SUMMARY: One of Canada's most unique events, Stratford's Annual
Swan Parade will take place on Sunday, April 5 at 2:00 pm sharp.
    For many, the first sighting of a robin or two in their backyard is an
indication that spring has arrived. For the residents of Stratford and the
surrounding area, the return of the swans to the Avon River is a truly festive
celebration to announce the arrival of spring. This unusual event has become
an annual tradition that attracts more and more visitors each year from as far
away as Toronto, Windsor and bordering states.
    The Stratford Police Pipes and Drums will lead the swans from their
Winter Quarters behind the William Allman Arena to the Avon River along a
route lined with hundreds of onlookers.
