Lake Days begins this year on June 3 and runs through until June 10. There are a plethora of activities planned yet again for this year, and organizers are hoping there is something for everyone.
Events begin on Sunday, June 3, with the Soap Box Derby time trials. This event takes place on Stone Ave., and will determine who races against who in the finals on Thursday, June 7.
On both days of the Soap Box Derby events there will be a concession stand featuring hot dogs and pop put on by a local youth group who will be donating the proceeds to El Salvador.
Before the trials the Christian Fellowship Church on Stone Ave. will be serving a free pancake breakfast between 8:30 and 10 a.m.
On Monday, June 4, at 6 p.m., the Lady of the Lake candidates will be attending a Strawberry Tea event in the lower Centennial Hall.
This event is open to Lady of the Lake sponsors, families, and the town’s senior citizens.
The Lake Cowichan Food Bank is requesting that individuals bring non-perishable goods to the Lake Days event and leave them at the gate with volunteers before heading into the festivities.
For a complete list of events, see the full feature guide in the June 6 issue of the Lake Cowichan Gazette.
