It’s going to be an exciting time in Williams Lake this weekend as approximately 230 high school graduates fill the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, and our streets, as part of graduation celebrations.

The formal 2014 graduation ceremonies for Lake City secondary get underway at 9:30 a.m. at the CMRC and will run until just after noon. Due to space limitations, the ceremony is by invitation only.

The public is invited to cheer on all our grads in the afternoon, however, as the excitement continues with the 2014 Dry Grad Parade, which kicks off at 6 p.m.

All parade participants will muster by entering Second Avenue via Rose Street off of Mackenzie Avenue North at 5 p.m. before the parade begins at the corner of Comer Street and Second Avenue.

The parade will continue down Second Avenue, turning left on Borland Street, then left on Third Avenue, moving along to Proctor Street then taking a right into the CMRC parking lot.

After grads arrive at the complex, the fun will continue with the Dry Grad celebrations which carry on until the early hours of Sunday morning.

Congratulations graduates.
