On May 3, 2013 members of the Ottawa Citroën Club participated in a celebrity parade to mark the opening of the Canadian Tulip Festival. Ian C picks up the story:
The Ottawa Citroën Club was well represented with 5 of our cars (two 2CVs, two DSs, and an SM). They joined 5 Mercedes-Benzes, a Bentley, and various military vehicles present. The parade started at Dows Lake and proceeded slowly down QE Driveway to City Hall. There were road closures and police escorts throughout. As usual the Cits stole the show. There is a nice shot of many ladies admiring the Citroens. Free beer and pizza with the mayor at the VIP tent completed the experience. Bruce, Ian, Margaret, Werner, Michel and Christian participated.
