A great time to head to Texada Island over the next couple of weekends. Sandcastle Weekend returns on Saturday July 22nd and Sunday July 23rd with a parade, food and craft vendors, bingo, bed races, pancake breakfast, dogshow and of course, the main attraction: sand sculptures. Great fun for the entire family! Gilles Bay, Texada Island.
Sea Fair Parade
Speaking of parades, Sea Fair Parade is Saturday July 22nd, starting at 10am at Joyce and Barnett and winding the way to Marine and Duncan. There is no Fair this year, just the parade keeping the light burning!
