That was a weekend to remember!
Lake Cowichan’s 75th anniversary celebration was a great party all weekend.
Along with a special tea that featured visiting dignitary Dr. Bill Carpentier of Apollo Space Program fame, Friday night at the Lake Cowichan 50+ Centre featured the judging of the anniversary cake bake-off.
Saturday, after the official ceremonies, Saywell Park was the place to be.
A kids zone, information booths, a popular forestry simulator from Vancouver Island University, food truck alley with lots of delicious eating options, the imagination station, a community dinner, and lots of great entertainment combined for a great day outdoors with friends and family in Lake Cowichan.
Meanwhile, the slo-pitch tournament was continuing, and up at Lake Cowichan School, a field of heroes was set up honouring all public service organizations, with fire trucks, a helicopter and lots more for families to visit.
Everything wound up Sunday with even more fun for kids, an afternoon of timbersports, and a great lakeside ‘pool party’.
