Life’s a beach and we are having our 3rd annual Beach Day event in Qualicum Beach on Sunday, July 13th. Kwali seagull is back to celebrate our beautiful waterfront and a really low tide at 1pm! Last year we had about 3,000 people attend this family fun event full of hands-on and even educational events plus plenty of local live music. Beach Day begins at 8:30 am with a hearty Shriner’s pancake breakfast and the Rainbow Stew Cloggers. Both beach and walkway activities start at 10:00 am and run to about 4:00 pm. There are a host of events such as the ‘Catching Beach Critters’ seine netting with biologist Dave Clough, VIU Shellfish Research Centre touch tank, face painting, ancient fossils, kite building, clowns, tug of war, sand castle building, beach golf, skim boarding, beach volleyball, even shark dissection, seaweed, birds and so much more. The QB’s Got Talent competition is back with amazing local musicians starting at 1:00 pm. This year we have a Beach Art competition where unique driftwood will be judged. Shuttles will be provided from both the downtown parkade and the Civic Centre to the waterfront. See you on the beach July 13th!
