Those who took part in this year’s Klondyke Days Pa­rade in Bay Roberts man­aged to with­stand the wind and en­joy a rare — at least for this sum­mer month — sight­ing of sun­shine last Thurs­day.

The pa­rade was sched­uled to go ahead the day be­fore, but rain put a damper on those plans. In­stead, dozens of com­mu­nity vol­un­teers and kids pa­raded along Wa­ter Street early Thurs­day evening, wav­ing at on­look­ers as they made their way from the Town Hall to the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion build­ing.

The Com­pass dropped by for the event and has these photos to share.

The Bay Roberts Sparks group picked a good day to pa­rade with a flag, con­sid­er­ing how windy it was last Thurs­day.
