Floats from the Renfrew County and Carleton lodges participated in the annual Eastern Ontario Orange parade in Carleton Place July 12.
The parade celebrates the victory of the Protestant King William of Orange over the Catholic King James II during the Battle of the Boyne in County Meath, Ireland, on July 12, 1690.
The battle was preceded by the Siege of Derry in from June 1688 to August 1689. The 105-day siege saw the forces of Catholic King James II lay siege to the Protestant-stronghold of Londonderry. James had been overthrown by his own daughter, Mary, and her husband, King William of Orange.
