Powell River Sea Fair a Huge Success

One of the reasons we picked Powell River for our home was because of its strong sense of community. One example is the annual Sea Fair. From Friday through Sunday, Powell Riverites enjoyed good food, music, booths and entertainment. It's amazing how much local talent there is here in Powell River.

As far as the music went, our favourite was Len Menard with his Johnny Cash impersonation. He's really great. For food, it ranged from sushi to curry to prawn kabobs to gyros to traditional hot dogs. It's hard to pick a favourite from that international smorgasbord. Entertainment included a carnival with lots of rides, games and prizes, but of course my favourites were the parade (including the ATV Club) and the Saturday night fireworks.

Wayne and I took our bookmobile called Mr. Float Cabin and sold our Coastal BC Stories books all three days. In addition to sales, we were able to listen to the bands and singers, and met lots of friends, neighbors and new acquaintances. Our small bottle of 10,000 year-old Powell Lake sea water was a hit with young and old alike.

This year's Sea Fair theme was "Magic by the Sea." It truly was a magical weekend. Wayne and I want to give a big thank you to the Sea Fair Committee for all of their hard work. And a special thank you to Dixie for helping us with our booth and making us feel so welcome. We just knew Powell River was the place for us. -- Margy

    Sounds like you had a real good time. The food choices are very inviting. I miss your blog when you are out of range.
