Graduating seniors took to the streets of Mile Zero Saturday - in costumes and decked out vehicles. Students jetted around Dawson Creek in the Mystery Machine, as lifeguards, KISS, and more as brightly painted vehicles and student teams took part in the annual grad scavenger hunt.
Teams raced around Dawson Creek collect points and take part in events. The competition mixes a scavenger hunt with reality shows like the Amazing Race or Survivor.
The scavenger hunt event runs on parent volunteers, as DCSS cannot be involved in the tradition.
A Kin Park Red Carpet Event goes Wednesday June 17 - and at 4pm the first group will start. Family and friends want the public to know that graduation red carpet will be going ahead - but organizers ask for people to kindly stay home and not attend - unless you have been invited.
June 18 to 20 will see a different looking graduation ceremony this year. There will be three ceremonies on the Thursday and Friday and five ceremonies on the Saturday, says DCSS Principal Josh Kurjata.
The ceremonies will occur in Unchagah Hall and provide students with a chance to cross the stage, receive their certificate, and take photos with family and friends.
All of the events will be live-streamed and recorded. In addition to photo banners that will be hung from City lamp posts, the Dawson Creek Mirror’s grad supplement goes after June ceremonies as well.
