The medical community and first responders of Ponoka showed their appreciation to the community with a vehicle parade through town on May 6.

The participants wanted to thank everyone for all the sacrifices being made during the pandemic.

The drivers, which included Ponoka RCMP, medical personnel, Town of Ponoka Coun. Kevin Ferguson and others, met at the Ponoka arena parking lot at 4 p.m., went down 50 St. downtown and over into Riverside, and came back to drove through other Ponoka neighbourhoods.

A parade route was not released beforehand in consideration of social distancing measures that prohibit crowds to gather.

The Town of Ponoka posted live video of the parade on its Facebook page.
