The pancake breakfast is followed by the Nanoose Days parade starting Nanoose Bay Fire Department (2471 Nanoose Rd.) at 10:30 a.m. The parade goes to Jack Bagley Field (Powder Point Road at Northwest Bay Road) where the Teddy Bear Picnic is held.

The picnic is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children can bring their favourite fuzzy friend.

There will be a food concession put on by the fire department as well/

One of the volunteers Wendy Barbour said about 600 people attended last year.

“It’s a day to just walk around and have fun,” Barbour said.

Barbour said they’re still looking for volunteers. To volunteer, call Barbour at 250-468-2042.
