Pender Harbour Days begins

July 10, 2016

Attention all boaters, come to Pender Harbour, British Columbia on your way to Desolation Sound, the most beautiful,protected harbour on the West Coast, and enjoy the annual Pender Harbour Days festivities. This community wide event celebrates all things nautical and historical.  Come and join the historical wooden boat parade on Friday followed by a night of music presented by our music society.  Saturday join our hiking group for a guided hike, rent a kayak, view the wooden boats and talk to their captains. Watch a hard hat diving display and view the ocean bottom on our wide screen tv.  Lots of activities for children such as wooden boat building, face painting and old fashion races.  Watch a log sawing contest using an old fashioned whip saw.  Close out the evening with a pig roast BBQ and dance at the Legion featuring “Playback.” Slow down on Sunday with a harbour cruise and close out ceremony featuring our ukulele band.  Many marinas are available in our harbour as well as excellent anchoring opportunities.  Check: penderharbour.ca/pender-harbour-days.html
