Everyone loves a parade — Qualicum Beach Family Day event a big success

Since 1976, Family Day has been sponsored by the Town of Qualicum Beach and organized by a group of dedicated volunteers

The rain subsided and the sun beamed on Second Avenue as more than a thousand people gathered Sunday to watch this year’s Family Day Parade in Qualicum Beach. There were dozens of floats, bikes, marchers, the Arrowsmith Pipe Band and vehicles of all sorts to enjoy. Spring has definitely sprung in the region, as evidenced by the colourful costumes and bright colours on display by those both in the parade and those who were watching.

Since 1976, Family Day has been sponsored by the Town of Qualicum Beach and organized by a group of dedicated volunteers. For dozens of more photos from the event, please visit our Facebook page:
