The class of 2017 has arrived, and to mark the occasion local graduating classes are taking to the water with their annual grad cruises.

On Friday, Abbotsford Senior students dressed their best with girls in fancy dresses and boys in their suits and ties enjoying a five hour long cruise.

The cruises are a great way to start off the year as students get to bond through a formal dinner and a night of dancing alongside the stunning Vancouver nightscape.
