Bay Roberts kicks off Klondyke Days

The Compass - - OPINION - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BY NICHOLASMERCER/THE COM­PASS

The Town of Bay Roberts had some per­fect weather for the an­nual run­ning of the Klondyke Days Pa­rade on July 23. The sun shone brightly as the large pa­rade made its way from the coun­cil build­ing on Wa­ter Street to the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion where hot dogs and drink awaited them. The pa­rade had a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing, in­clud­ing zumba, mas­cots, mu­sic, fire trucks and even a scene from Dis­ney’s Frozen. Hun­dreds of the town’s res­i­dents lined the street for their chance to see the pa­rade and wave at the par­tic­i­pants. The Com­pass took in the pa­rade and cap­tured these im­ages.

Reign­ing Ju­nior Miss Teen Trin­ity Con­cep­tion Aileen Pike had a stylish ride for the pa­rade. Driv­ing for her is Bay Roberts’ chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer Nigel Black.
