Bathtub Weekend 2019 Street Fair Nanaimo


VICTORIA CRESCENT STREET FAIR
 BATHTUB WEEKEND 
SAT. JULY 20/19 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come - have fun - and enjoy the FREE Victoria Crescent Street Fair in downtown Nanaimo Bathtub Weekend.

On Saturday, July 20 there will be a giant slide for the kids, bouncy castles, a big blow-up dart board, basketball hoops, a 60-foot obstacle course to swerve, climb and manoeuvre through. Children can have their faces painted, play games and take part in the Watermelon Eating and Egg Running competitions.

Adults can marvel at the dozens-and-dozens of classical, hot rod and weird and wacky vehicles. Nanaimo Search and Rescue will be on-scene to show off their equipment, so too Nanaimo Fire-Rescue, the RCMP and B.C. Sheriff Service.

On Crescent Stage, listen to the Nanaimo Fiddle Society or watch martial arts demonstrations.

You won't want to miss the famous Server's Race - a Bathtub Weekend tradition - right in front of the Queen's Hotel. Bar Staff from throughout the city will compete for the coveted trophy - balancing their drink trays, trying not to spill a drop, while they run from table-to-table.

It's all at the Victoria Crescent Street Fair, Bathtub Weekend in downtown Nanaimo, Saturday, July 20. 
Where Everything is Free!

Another Nanaimo Bike Theft



The above is a screengrab from a Facebook group 'Stealing Nanaimo' posted on July 10. As stated in the post a couple visiting our fair city on their boat were shopping in our delightful downtown at Port Place. While there, adding those much sought after tourist dollars to our fair city they had their bikes stolen which were locked to a bike rack in broad daylight.

Welcome to Nanaimo ............... perhaps our local constabulary can get serious about relieving folk of their bolt cutters as clearly there is NO legitimate reason to have one on your person.

Perhaps our city council and health authority might make a concerted effort to do something to protect the average, law abiding citizen rather than making Nanaimo more and more accommodating to the criminals drawn to our ever growing drug culture.
