Oak Bay High graduates continued their tradition of a Block Party at Willows Beach on Friday.

Grads, friends and family swarmed the park and parking lot to celebrate the final month of high school. Oak Bay has 365 grads for 2019.

“The parents sure put on a wonderful block party and having it at Willow’s was a first, as it has rotated through various neighbourhoods,” said teacher Scott Alexander.
