Sea Cavalcade Mile, Gibsons

Sea Cavalcade Mile

2018 was the 16th annual Sea Cav Mile. The Sea Cavalcade is not happening in 2019. We hope it will return in 2020, and with it the mile race. The mile was a fast net downhill course to start the Sea Cavalcade parade, with cash prizes for the overall winners and medals for age group winners. Great crowd to cheer you on!
