VIDEO: Powell River school continues May Day tradition

James Thomson staff members and their families parade through Wildwood neighbourhood and Tla'amin Nation

James Thomson Elementary School continued its longstanding tradition of hosting May Day celebrations on Friday, May 15.

Due to COVID-19, activities for the 65th annual event were reduced to a parade through Wildwood and Tla’amin Nation, with staff members and their families practising social distancing by travelling in separate decorated vehicles, along with first responders and a few classic cars.

Dignitaries participated in the event via online videos, and students who are studying at home kept the May Day spirit alive with their own activities.
