Port Clements rings in Canada’s 150th

Red, white, and mudbog brown flew proudly in Port Clements this weekend at Haida Gwaii’s biggest 150th Canada Day celebration.

Starting with a kids fishing derby and a paddle race in Masset Inlet Friday, runners kicked off the morning of Saturday, July 1 with the first-ever foot race on the newly extended Community Trail.

Next a 150th-themed parade marched along Bayview before an afternoon full of loggers sports and ball games closed by a dance and evening show of fireworks exploding over Rainbow Wharf.

The mudbogs roared Sunday, which also featured the calm, clean fun of the annual birdhouse contest and a show of folk dancing.
