A car procession made its way through the streets of Castlegar Friday with the goal of bringing cheer to local seniors.

The group travelled to Stellar Place, Castleview Care Centre, Talarico Place and Castlewood Village.

“I thought it would be fun to give the elderly people some love by driving by the care facilities in a car procession,” said the event’s organizer Celina French.
