Shaw plans to film the Tea Party Parade and broadcast it in Greater Victoria and Cowichan Valley plus Salt Spring, Pender and Galiano islands.
“It’s a great opportunity for people who are in the parade to actually see themselves in the parade, they never get to watch the parade,” said Tea Party volunteer Hazel Braithwaite. “For people who grew up in Oak Bay and live away, now they’ll have an opportunity to watch it on television.”
Shaw’s Daphne Goode and former Tea Party chair Bill Murphy-Dyson will MC the parade. Billed as the “colour and community expression of the 54th Annual Parade” it will run 90 minutes on channel 4. Showtimes are Tuesday, June 7, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 11 at 9 a.m.
