Beachfest: safe beach parking

The Parksville Beach Festival Society would like to thank the people who flocked to the beach the weekend of July 15.

The Parksville Beach Festival Society would like to thank the people from Parksville Qualicum Beach, as well as the visitors to the area, who flocked to the Parksville beach on the weekend of July 15.

Not only was it the opening weekend for the Quality Foods Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition, with the Things With Wings theme, but it was also the weekend for Kite Fest and a volleyball tournament.

We realize it can be a bit awkward getting into the park on these busy days and our intention with guided parking is to keep a controlled and safe environment for visitors.

Thousands of people came through our gates and many generously donated to our parking attendants. We really appreciate the funds that we receive for this, as it helps us to give back to the community that supports us in so many ways.

We thank you for your generosity and we hope to see you at the beach.

Leslie Phillips, vice president Parksville Beachfest SocietyParksville
