The POW! Parade of Wonders is an annual cosplay parade celebrating pop culture and creativity in Calgary’s downtown. Watch on Stephen Avenue as hundreds of costumed characters march from Eau Claire to Olympic Plaza to kick off the Calgary Expo.

If you’re marching, be sure to get there at 9am to check-in, if you’re watching you can get a spot on either Stephen Avenue (8th ave SW from 3rd street to Olympic Plaza) or along 3rd Street SW.
