1980s REVISITED: Back to the future was the theme for the Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce 30th annual Fantasy Auction on Saturday night. The classic Michael J. Fox movie played on the big screen at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre as guests, a few of them in classic 80s attire, enjoyed an entertaining evening. Bidding was fierce on the 150 silent auction items, including this unique skateboard featuring Tillman, the world’s fastest skateboarding bulldog, donated by Sue Battle of Bosley’s Pet Food Plus in Parksville (above).
