Saturday is going to be a big day for the Qualicum Beach Museum as the local facility holds a special opening ceremony to mark the start of the summer season.

Museum spokesperson Robin Smith said the event kicks off at 10:30 a.m. with a performance by the Qualicum Beach town crier, Len Mustard, as well as music by the Old Time Fiddlers.

Smith said anyone who hasn’t been to the museum recently won’t want to miss the event, which includes a free tour of the facility.

“We have some new displays, including an amazing array of furniture made with rock from the Hope slide, as well as some other new additions,” she said. “If somebody hasn’t been to the museum in the last year, they’ll find lots to see.”

During the summer months the museum will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
