This weekend Selkirk’s Class of 2015 celebrates graduation, with Prom and Dry Grad on Friday and the ceremony on Saturday at the Civic Centre, 3 p.m.
One of Kimberley’s traditions is the gathering of grads at Cominco Gardens for pictures and an opportunity to show off the prom finery.
In the past couple of years a new tradition has begun — the grad parade through the Platzl, and a chairlift ride up Northstar Mountain.
For those who’d like to catch a look at the class of 2015 in the Platzl, the plan is for students to gather near the Kimberley Public Library at 3 p.m.
They will march through the Platzl to the Bean Tree then back up Deer Park Avenue. They will then gather at the gazebo for photos, and a word from Mayor Don McCormick.
If you do plan to attend the Platzl parade, please bring a folding chair.
Grads will then go up to Cominco Gardens for more photos, then the chairlift ride and then enjoy their prom.
