The turn-out was good and the crowds were well behaved on Canada Day in Parksville Community Park, according to the RCMP.

“We’re pretty happy with how it went — there were a lot of people at the beach,” said Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Jesse Foreman, who spent the evening patrolling by bike.

“People are getting the message from council about this being a family oriented event,” he said, “but a few people were taken to cell for intoxication.”

He said considering the number of people it was a huge success from a policing perspective and he wasn’t even aware of any festivity-related accidents that day.
