Nanaimo Weekend Weather Looks Great

More Good Kite Flying
Weather On The Way

Grab your kite and head down to Departure Bay Beach or your favourite park this weekend as the weatherman promises to co-operate once again.

Bowen Park, Westwood Lake, Diver's Lake, Coliery Dam, Piper's Lagoon, Syw-a-lana Lagoon, Maffeo Sutton Park, Nanaimo's Seawall are just a few great places to spend sunny weekend days in Nanaimo. And they can all be enjoyed for FREE!

You can also take a ride on the ferry over to Newcastle Island which is another popular summertime spot with Nanaimoites and visitors alike.

Downtown offers the daily cannon firing in the plaza next to the Bastion which is also open if you haven't taken that in yet. There is also the art gallery downtown and the Nanaimo Museum also being worth a visit. Pop into the PNC and see the E.J. Hughes mural if you haven't seen it. Of course there is the farmers market on Friday and a pleasant stroll along the seawall as great options also.

If being on the water appeals to you be sure to check out the free paddling and sailing sessions at Long Lake this Saturday. All ages are welcome for this fun day put on by the Nanaimo Canoe and Kayak Club in conjuntion with the Nanaimo Yacht Club. There will be coaches on hand to offer basic instruction and training and those participating can enjoy a free barbecue.
This fun event is on from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm this Sunday May 31 at Loudon Park on Long Lake.
