Changes for KSS prom parade route

Annual event takes place June 3 in Qualicum Beach

The longstanding Kwalikum Secondary School Prom Parade is getting a new route this year.

Pamela Garrow, who is on the prom committee, said the parade can no longer close down Memorial Avenue in Qualicum Beach since it’s a connecting road between two highways.

Garrow said the grads will be setting up and mustering on Harlech Road. The parade route will go along Harlech Road, then left onto Beach Road with another left onto West First Avenue, a right onto Primrose Street and another right onto West Second Avenue. The parade will follow Second Avenue then turn left onto Jones Street, taking a right at the second entrance of the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

The parade starts at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 3. Following the parade is the red carpet gala at the civic centre.

Garrow said some of the students have submitted their parade rides to the committee. The rides — so far — include a fire truck, a couple of limousines, a few jeeps, trucks pulling boats, a motorcycle with a sidecar as well as a trailer decorated like a float.
