Weekends on the Water
- August 24, 2018
Free family fun, that’s how it all started about 2 years ago with Float Fest. The goal; utilize the beautiful canal for a free and fun event for the whole family, and all it took was a floaty. Results were amazing. The next year in 2017, the volunteers put it together again with the goal in mind to make a new Guinness World Record for the longest line of floaters. The wind was a bit of a challenge, but the residents showed up and we did it! Again in 2018, the weather co-operated, families came out, singers and song writers entertained us all afternoon, rows of food trucks kept us fed, and row of vendors even gave us a shopping opportunities. The 10pm firework finale was amazing, and thirty minutes long! How often do you see fireworks for 30minutes? It was beautiful. When is 2019 float fest going to be, not sure, dates have changed year over year, but early next year, start searching ‘float fest 2019’.
This weekend, Aug 25 & 26 the City is putting up a new event, for free, for anyone age 6 and up with Wibit’s on the canal. Located just behind the hotel, come out from Noon – 6pm to give it a try. What’s Wibit? I can sum it up as a playground on the water.
