This annual event features tons of food, drink, prizes and fun events for the whole family. Sample local restaurants chowder, and cast your ballet for the best. The Bold Knight is hoping to repeat last years victory. Advance tickets are $12 and $15 at the door. For more details check this website here. Be sure to put a great, large reminder on the fridge to be sure and not miss the Symphony in the Harbour put on by the Vancouver Island Symphony. It takes place in the Lion's Pavilion at Maffeo Suton Park and starts at 6:00 pm. Bring your picnic, blankets and lawn chair to this great free event. For more details see their website here.
If you are a Timberman fan, you will no doubt be going to their semi final game against the New Westminster Salmonbellies on Saturday the 11th at Frank Crane Arena at 7:00pm. For more information check their website here.
And of course there are still all of the 'regular' things to do such as walking the seawall which is a nice stroll from the yacht club all the way downtown to Cameron Island. Don't forget the Farmers Market on Friday, the cannon firing daily at noon, both at Pioneer Waterfront Plaza, beside the Bastion.
Speaking of the Bastion, if you have not been inside, what are you waiting for? Don't forget to drop into the Museum on Cameron Rd. to see their latest exhibits. There is of course all of the lovely Parks and 'swimming holes' to take advantage of as well. If enough people turn up, the weather just has to get more like summer, right?
If there is something you would like to see posted here just send a note to admin@nanaimo-info.com and we will be happy to oblige.
Have another great weekend in the Harbour City of Nanaimo.
