Perfect weather all day Sunday
Parking lot was packed both days
The Rogers Hometown Hockey show transformed Maffeo Sutton park over the weekend which among other highlights featured Nanaimo during the intermissions of the NHL hockey game broadcast.
All reports would indicate it was a great family event with Free outdoor skating being popular as well as the zipline over the lagoon. The wait of up to an hour was said to be well worth it with one youngster immediately wanting to get back in line for another ride.
Perhaps the zipline could become a regular feature in the park year round which might entice enough people to make a go of more food carts, and perhaps a night market??
