With the COVID-19 still ongoing, and vaccination timelines uncertain, the Town of Qualicum Beach has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Beach Day celebration.
Event chairman Tom Whitfield indicated it is unlikely the vaccination rollout will be complete in time for the anticipated July 18, 2021 Beach Day event, especially for the younger participants.
Whitfield appreciated the support Beach Day has received over the years and is sad to have to cancel the event again this year. But they’re not completely giving up.
“Should the situation improve drastically by early June, the Beach Day Committee will reach out to determine the feasibility of pulling together a quick Beach Day event,” said Whitfield in a press release.
