Sunshine makes for amazing 2022 L.V. Rogers Cavalcade, Walk
Even Mother Nature chipped in to cooperate to make the 2022 L.V. Rogers Cavalcade and Grad Walk a success.
Saturday, the LVR graduating class of 2022 mustered up enough positive energy to part the clouds and allow the sun to shine down on the annual Cavalcade ceremonies, that this year included a Grad Walk to follow the parade through downtown Nelson.
Grad collected their respective transportation at the Selkirk College Tenth Street campus parking lot Saturday afternoon before traveling along Douglas Road with the assistance of Nelson Police Department and Nelson Fire and Rescue Services and into the downtown core along Baker Street where they were greeted by lines of spectators.
Following the parade, the Grads jumped out of their vehicles to stage a walk down Baker Street led by a marching drum band.
Once the walk was completed, Grads gathered later for the banquet and dance.
