Harbour Days this weekend in Masset

  • May. 13, 2009 9:00 a.m.

It’s Harbour Days this weekend, so head up to Masset for lots of fun. The festivities begin with an art show and a dance with Honey Brown Friday evening, and close with the pole raising at the hospital on Monday afternoon. In between, the schedule is packed full of exciting events. Start Saturday and Sunday morning with a pancake breakfast at the community hall, then check out some of the many activities, such as the soap box derby, rugby exhibition, the Annual Seafood Chowder Cook-off, children’s games, dunk-tank, sumo suits, inflatable obstacle course, motorcycle rides, dog show, and parade. On Saturday night, there is a second dance with Honey Brown, and on Sunday night the fireworks display. As if all this isn’t enough, the Co-op will also be introducing its new mascot, named Cooper, this weekend. For more info and times and locations of events, see the orange insert in this Observer.
