Port Clements is the place to celebrate Canada’s birthday this weekend, with events ranging from helicopter rides, a fishing derby, and the ever-popular ‘Mud Bog’ on Sunday.
“Now we just need the sun to shine,” said organizer Bev Lore, who said they are just finishing pulling the whole event together. She said that lots of people are also looking forward to the Kids’ Logger Sports, and that the adult logger sports will go ahead, despite an earlier problem. “We’re scrambling a bit,” said Ms. Lore, but she was optimistic it would go ahead.
Other events include boat tours of the inlet, a parade, the highly entertaining ‘chicken poop bingo,’ and a fun run.
The weekend will also be packed with sports tournaments – the all-island soccer tournament and also the slow-pitch tournament will be taking place on both Saturday and Sunday.
So come on down (or up) to Port this July 3 and 4, it’s guaranteed to be an action packed weekend!
