Fabulous time for families in Qualicum Beach

Qualicum Beach was buzzing with children on Sunday for the town’s annual Family Day event.

The day started off with a free swim at Ravensong Aquatic Centre which was followed by the annual parade down West Second Avenue.

Afterward, families flocked to the park behind the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre for activities including a bouncy castle, a climbing wall, pony rides for kids, a magician as well as a competition at the skate park hosted by Airhouse Nanaimo.

The theme for the 2017 Qualicum Beach Family Day was Then and Now to help celebrate the town’s 75th anniversary as well as Canada 150th year of confederation.
