Description: A colour photograph with white borders mounted on a thin piece of cardboard. Photograph of an unknown Pipe and Drum band during the Mississauga City Day parade. The musicians are wearing black military style jackets with red kilts and a large chin strap hat, decorated with fur on top and on the back. The group looks to be walking down Hurontario.

Photograph taken from Mississauga City Day that was celebrated on Saturday, September 7, 1974 with a parade that began at Square One Shopping Centre and travelled along Highway 10 and Lakeshore Road to Port Credit Memorial Park. The parade and the event was organized by the City to commemorate the Corporation of the City of Mississauga earlier that year. In 1976, service clubs took over the running of the festival, which was renamed the Mississauga Festival. In 1978 the event was again renamed Fritterfest and became a non-for profit charitable organization. The name Fritter was chosen because it was considered an international food and reflects Mississauga's multicultural communities. In 1982 the festival name was changed yet again to the Rainbow Festival and in later years the event was held at the end of June instead of September.
