Sun shines on colourful Cowichan Lake Days parade

Cowichan Valley Citizen

Everyone in Lake Cowichan was looking warily westward Saturday morning, June 9. It had already rained heavily the previous day and night but hopes were high with the sun in the sky, even though there were looming dark clouds.

However, out they came, packing umbrellas along with their lawn chairs, but determined to enjoy the annual Cowichan Lake Days parade. Young and old, they lined up along Cowichan Lake Road and South Shore Road to enjoy a fun morning outside.

And all the crossed fingers worked. The parade was completed in warm sunshine, with lots of floats, Lady of the Lake decorated cars, and walking groups. There was candy, Lake Days beads and other handouts for all as the community continued a long tradition of celebrating Cowichan Lake Days.
