At the time, Flin Flon’s population of 7,000 was composed of people from more than 20 nationalities. Just about everyone in town pitched in to make the Jubilee parade a success. Many of the floats were built by the various ethnic communities in town; they used the Jubilee celebrations as a chance to celebrate their own heritage.
A permanent steel archway decorated with evergreen boughs was erected on a concrete base next to the railway tracks. It features prominently in the many photographs from that day.
