This weekend Skidegate invites islanders to come celebrate the 26th Skidegate Days.
A new event this year is a family potluck dinner and talent night this Friday evening at the Skidegate community hall. The headliner is comedian Lenard Dick as ‘Moccasin Joe’. Mr. Dick draws on his life experience to create the role of a stereotypical Indian and poke fun at himself, says Waneeta Richardson of the Ngystle Society, which is sponsoring Mr. Dick’s visit to the islands.
Another new event is the beach volleyball tournament Thursday evening on Front Street by the Homemakers hall.
People who want to get moving can join the diabetes prevention walk with Bev Boese. Gather at the Skidegate Health Centre between 10:30 and 11:00 am. Blood sugar testing is available as well as prizes and water. It will be a 30-minute walk with a choice of longer or shorter walks for different fitness levels.
And for people who like to stroll and browse – food, game and craft tables will be set up on Front Street Saturday morning. The canoe races begin around 3 pm.
Skidegate Days ends with a sockeye salmon barbeque beginning at 4 pm at the playground area. Food and dishes provided.
