Monty the Safety Bear was joined by four members of the Strathcona County Crime Watch Association executive on the crime watch float at the South Cooking Lake Trail Days Parade on August 19.
Several hundred people lined the streets of the small hamlet for the parade, which was also held to mark the South Cooking Lake Community League's 100th anniversary.
A Strathcona County Enforcement Services officer was behind the wheel of a pickup truck pulling the float while three other officers - two on all-terrain vehicles and one on a bicycle - rode in behind.
As the float rolled along the 2 km-long route, Monty waved to the crowd. Also on board was SCCWA president Bonny Burton and board members Chuck Hutchings, Gary Sears and Gary Poignant.
The Strathcona County Enforcement Services members who participated in the parade were; Michael Binczyk, Michael Bjornson, Walter Filiplic, Josh Hughes, Steve Landry, Dave Murray, Steve Schmidt and Tracy Zaborowsky.
Also attending the event was local MLAs Kyle Kasawski and Nate Glubish along with Strathcona County Mayor Rod Frank and councillors Lorne Harvey, Glen Lawrence and Corey-Ann Hartwick.
The Cooking Lake area, now home to about 270 people, first started as a farm in the 1890s.
