This Saturday is the 25th anniversary for Nanoose Bay Teddy Bear Picnic.

The day starts off with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Nanoose Bay Lions at Nanoose Place (2925 Northwest Bay Rd.) from 8-10 a.m.

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.

Don’t miss out on the huge gathering of more than mascots and teddy bears.

There will be a bouncy castle and a dunk tank along with other games and activities.

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.
