The committee organizing graduation at Parkland Secondary School is inviting the public to line local streets for a car parade on June 25.
The purpose is to give family, friends and the community a chance to congratulate Parkland graduates, as health regulations have forced the cancellation or modification of in-person graduation events, said a release announcing the event.
The parade departs from Parkland at 2 p.m. and heads along McDonald Park Road before turning left onto Resthaven Drive. It will then turn left on Beacon Avenue, followed by a turn right onto First Street to Ocean Avenue.
From there, it will turn right on Fifth Street and travel through the downtown before turning left on James White Boulevard. Then it’s right on Resthaven Drive and right again on McDonald Park Road for the way back to the school.
“The grads of Sidney and North Saanich look forward to seeing you step out at 2 p.m. on June 25th to line in streets in support,” the release reads.
Organizers are asking members of the public to follow COVID-19 social distancing guidelines when viewing the parade.
