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.

“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.
