Bringing history alive at Spirit Square

Take an hour or two and enjoy our heritage this Saturday at Spirit Square

Can history come alive?

At Heritage Day in Spirit Square, this Saturday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., history will certainly do its best.

There’s presentations by River City Players, Crow Theatre, musician Roy Ashdown, the Museum Heritage Puppet Theatre, the Campbell River Indian Band as well as a terrific historical fashion show.

Former mayor Skip McDonald will have a few words to say, as will Blair McLean and senior Jacquie Allen.

The static displays include the Dominion History Project and the Alberni Project, Scottish Tartans as well as the Maritime Heritage Centre and a group of vintage tractors from the Glacier Heritage Power and Equipment Club.

It’s local history with a bit of fun. A great day for the family.

Take an hour or two and enjoy our heritage this Saturday at Spirit Square.
