This year, Masset’s Harbour Day (Saturday August 16) will be short but sweet, ending mid-afternoon but still jam- packed with lots of family oriented activities.The day will begin at 8 am with the Lion’s pancake breakfast at Howard Phillip’s Community Hall.The recreation field near the village office will be busy throughout the morning with kids’ activities like sumo wrestling, a bouncy castle, face painting, and the u-pedal bikes.Get in prime position to catch some candy as islanders line the street for the parade, which starts at 1 pm this year.As usual there’ll be plenty to eat, with the fire department selling burgers, Daddy Cool’s slinging tacos, and the farmers’ market in full swing. Be sure to catch the seafood chowder competition and maybe grab a bowl to judge for yourself.A community awards presentation at the Dixon Entrance Maritime museum will wrap up the official day events around 3 pm. Swing by to see organizations recognize friends and neighbours for their efforts in the community.There’ll be no dinner or dance this year, said Masset mayor Andrew Merilees, in consideration of the Naikoon clan chieftainship potlatch in Old Massett that same evening.Nothing caps off a celebration like some sparkle, so be sure to look up after dark to catch the firework display!For any questions or to reserve a tent at the farmers’ market and craft fair, contact the village office at 626-3995.
