Qualicum Beach grad parade ready to roll

Annual event planned for evening of June 2

Kwalikum Secondary School Grade 12 students are gearing up walk across the stage for graduation. First, they get to walk — or roll — through the streets of Qualicum Beach in the school’s annual grad parade this Saturday, June 2.

The KSS grad parade will start at Harlech and Beach roads at 5:30 p.m., following Harlech Road, heading west to Primrose Street, then up Primrose Street, turning right onto Second Avenue. The parade will then turn left onto Jones Street and end at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

Byron Smith, parade organizer, said modes of transportation will include cars, trucks, a golf cart, boats, trailers, a rickshaw and a police car this year.

“The KSS Grad Class of 2018 is very excited to be closing this chapter in their lives with such a fun occasion. They look forward to the community coming out to celebrate their achievement with them,” Smith said.
