Royalty float needs a driver

Peachfest organizers are looking for a driver to help show off the City of Penticton parade float which Miss Penticton and her princesses act as ambassadors for the community.

“They will travel with the royalty and go to all the parades. It’s perfect for someone who is semi-retired and looking for something to do to help the community,” said Peachfest organizer Don Kendall.

The driver who had volunteered their time for the past two years has moved away, leaving the spot vacant for someone with a Class 4 licence.

The Penticton royalty and parade float travel throughout the B.C. Interior, Washington State and to the Calgary Stampede.

The volunteer driver will be provided training, and expenses for trips will be covered.

Parade season runs from April to October. For more information contact 250-487-9709.
