PHOTOS: Comox BC Day Parade

Families lined both sides of Comox Avenue for the return of the BC Day Parade, after a COVID-induced two-year absence. The parade is part of the town’s Nautical Days celebration, which took place over the August long weekend.

Record editor Terry Farrell was there with his camera. Here are some of his favourite shots.
