How to turn a regular bass drum into a marching bass drum?

pretty basic question, is there any way to turn a kit bass drum into a marching bass drum. or anywhere to buy used ones that would send them to canada?

Not quite a bass drum but I once rigged up a 12" side snare for caroling. I tied some leather cord under the tension rods and clipped a strap from an old suitcase to the cord. You'll need something a little more sturdy like Caddy suggested but it certainly can be done without drilling holes in your drum.

Or you could get yourself one of these. Looks like it just clips to 2 of the tension rods.
