VIDEO: Strawberry Tea opens Cowichan Lake Days 2017

Lady of the Lake royalty and candidates combine with straweberry shortcake to make a special event

The Lower Centennial Hall was buzzing only moments after the doors opened as Cowichan Lake seniors and supporters of the Lady of the Lake pageant arrived for the Strawberry Tea.

This very popular annual event is a Cowichan Lake Days standby, traditionally opening a special week for the reigning Lady of the Lake royalty and the new candidates.

They all get to speak to a really supportive audience, and the crowd then enjoys the chance to meet them as they serve the tea and shortcake.

Music for Monday night’s event was provided by the Rivernotes Choir, directed by Judith Quinlan.

More Lady of the Lake excitement follows Wednesday night, June 7, as they present Opportunity Night at 6:30 in the Upper Centennial Hall.

Come out and see and hear them present a talent night for the whole family. Admission is $5 for all ages.
