2012 Heritage Days Fun for all to enjoy

2012 Heritage Days was a bustle of activity as locals and visitors alike took in the festivities.

On Saturday May 19, downtown Lake Cowichan was a bustle of activity as locals and visitors alike took in the festivities.

Most of the activity centred around the Cowichan Lake Visitor Centre and Saywell park. There was face painting for the kids, plants and hanging baskets by Lake Bloomers and Communities in Bloom, historical exhibits at the Kaatza Museum for all the history buffs, and even legends of the stin-qua with Gil Mauro.

Around town those wanting to take a moment out of the sun were able to stroll through the many art pieces on exhibit at the Kaatza Art Show and Sale in the town’s Community Hall. Or they were able to wander over to the St. Aidan’s/St. Christopher’s Church and stand in awe imagining the many hours of work local quilters have put into making their fabulous creations.
