NPSS Class of 21 Parade rocks the street once again

North Peace Secondary has altered it's drive-by graduation parade route ahead of its 1:30 p.m. start time. The new route will see students lined up along 86 St., between 100 and 93 Ave, and along 93 Ave, from 86 to 93 St.

North Peace Secondary held an outdoor drive-by parade for the second straight year, during the Class of 2021 celebrations on June 18.

Just like a year ago, graduates were lined up on the side of the road, waving at family and friends who drove by. However, students were allowed to gather closer together this year due to the easing of Covid restrictions.

Those driving by the parade dressed up as well, decorating their vehicles, and making sure they put a smile on the face of their favourite grad.

Traffic was backed up on to 100 Ave, and on 86 St. near the Surerus ball diamonds, as drivers waited their turn to join the parade.
