Highland Secondary School grads will once again arrive in style at their graduation ceremony as the Highland Grad Classic Car Cruise continues this year.
There are expected to be about 40 vehicles ranging from Model As to the most potent muscle cars transporting over 90 grads on a scenic cruise around the Comox Peninsula on the afternoon of June 1.
The event will get underway shortly after 2 p.m. as grads meet their drivers and cars in the Highland Secondary parking lot, just off Pritchard Road in Comox.
The cruise itself will start at about 3 p.m. and follow a route that includes Lazo Road, Knight Road, Military Row, Ryan Road, Crown Isle Drive, Lerwick Road, Anderton Road, and Comox Avenue. The cruise will take a quick loop through Marina Park to allow cruise participants to view the rest of the cars. They should start arriving at Filberg Park at approximately 4 p.m.
There may be a few minor inconveniences to the public during this time, mostly at the intersections listed above. We appreciate the patience of the motoring public in this matter.
Highland Secondary would like to take this opportunity to thank the RCMP for providing the traffic control and support to the procession, thus ensuring that it runs smoothly and safely.
Thanks also go to all those automobile owners and drivers who generously supply their time and wheels, without which this event couldn’t take place.
