Beach Day a big success in Qualicum Beach

Hundreds of families came to enjoy the beach and its creatures and also entertainment, learning opportunities and food options

For the hundreds, perhaps thousands of people who were there, Qualicum Beach Day 2016 was a real hands-on affair.

There were many things to touch and explore, from live creatures dragged from the Salish Sea to a dissected shark.

The weather was fabulous and the tide was out for most of the event on Sunday, which made for a great day on the beach. Add in the dozens of displays, face-painting, entertainment and much more, and Beach Day was a great success again this year.
