PULL HARD!: One of the more popular events at Beach Day on Sunday in Qualicum Beach was the tug of war

If there’s one thing the organizers of Sunday’s Beach Day in Qualicum Beach didn’t want to see was an unseasonably cool or rainy day. However, that clearly wasn’t in the cards as residents and visitors alike enjoyed the baking heat of a July summer’s day to check out what the local oceanfront has to offer. That included — on this day at least — a pancake breakfast, musical entertainment, food, tug-of-war games, a vintage swimsuit show, a talent competition and many other activities. One of those was a beach sein organized by the local Streamkeepers group. This event saw members of the younger set swarm to the water to help drag the net and collect the many specimens caught in the mesh. Not to be outdone, Vancouver Island University had a touch tank that was also a big hit with the kids. This was the second annual Beach Day and organizers are confident that the strong turnout — on a day when there were many other outdoors-oriented events in the area — shows it won’t be the last.
