Street surfers Isla and Barrett Johnson carve a turn in the Masset Harbour Day parade on Sunday, May 20. The beach-day themed parade was just one of several Harbour Day highlights.

It’s a boat, it’s a bike, it’s a boat-bike! With tables of crafts at the Howard Phillips Community Hall, Shirley Kricheldorf helped kids get their bikes sea-worthy before the parade. (Andrew Hudson/Haida Gwaii Observer)

Some of the best goodies in the parade flew off the Haida Gwaii Co-op float. (Andrew Hudson/Haida Gwaii Observer)
