It’s time to celebrate Canada Days in Port again, and this year, there’s something for everyone. It all starts Friday evening with the kids fishing derby and continues Saturday with a pancake breakfast, then the parade which starts at 10 am. There are two things new this year, both bound to be popular. The Great Port Clements Paddle Race starts at 2 pm at the old farm on the Yakoun, and there’s also a birdhouse building competition. Get building!As in past years, there’s soccer, kids games, a beer garden and music, music, music, running Saturday from 3 to 8.For a complete schedule of the weekend, see the flyer in this Observer and Islands This Week. On Sunday, the action continues, with more pancakes in the early morning, softball, a fun run at 10 am, soccer at 11, a tour of the upgraded water plant from noon to 1, and then the main event of the day, the ever-popular mud bog at 1 pm. Come out and watch your neighbours plough their vehicles through the mud, as the tires spin and the engines scream. Wow! As well, concessions, bike re-psyche and much, much more. Port is the place to be this weekend. Friday, Saturday, Sunday. See you there!
