Ballenas Dry Grad Fashion Show a success

The Oscars weren’t the only event that packed seats on Sunday, Feb. 24.

In Parksville, people filled the Community Centre to watch the annual Ballenas Dry Grad Fashion Show, supporting Ballenas Secondary School’s grad celebrations in 2019. Grads donned clothing provided mostly by local stores for the event, as well as clothing from a few stores in Nanaimo.

The grads are hosting Baby Jane March 2 as their next event to raise funds for prom.
