PEACE ARCH STATE PARK (NEWS1130) – It will be a little busier than usual at the borders this afternoon.

The Peace Arch crossing will be closed for several hours, meaning the other crossings will back up with the extra volume.

Peace Arch will be closed from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. as Girl Guides and Boy Scouts from both sides of the line are participating in the 90th annual Hands Across the Border event.

A parade will go through the Arch at 1 p.m.

Canadian Border Services says you’ll probably want to use the Truck Crossing instead.
