Harbour Days this weekend

  • May. 19, 2004 12:00 p.m.

Don’t let the beautiful weather fool you, summer doesn’t really start until Masset’s Harbour Days this weekend.
“Preparations are going really well,” said organizer Mary Frick. “We’ve had our final meeting, so now we’re just hoping the weather will cooperate!”
The festival has events Friday evening, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
The popular chainsaw competition is the scheduled kick-off at 1:00 pm Friday, said Ms Frick. It’s an annual highlight, and always brings out the best of local talent, she said. Awards for the competition will be given out on Monday.
The soap box derby will be an “event to see” – over 65 kits have been sold already, said Ms Frick. You can catch this event at 2:00pm Monday.
“Come out and show your wonderful colours!” she said, encouraging people to turn up for the parade. Everyone’s invited to participate, which makes it an unusual parade because “it’s a surprise,” – nobody knows until the last minute who is going to be in it.
Whatever floats your boat, there is something at Harbour Days for you – softball tournament, motorcycle rides, kids’ games, bird walks, model boat competition- check out the centrefold of this Observer for a full schedule of events.
