Following the Heritage Days Truck Parade, and the Pooch Parade at Lake Cowichan’s Saywell Park on Saturday, May 18, it was time for the decorated bicycle parade.

This event has been quietly building over the past few years and by 1 p.m. it was obvious that there are lots of kids with bikes in Lake Cowichan.

The bicycles were decorated with flowers, streamers, clickers, greenery: anything handy that would stay on with an active youngster aboard, making for a colourful display all around.
