Heritage Fair May 1–2

The Alberni Valley Museum Regional Heritage Fair takes place at Echo Centre and the AV Museum May 1 for judging and May 2 for public viewing

The Alberni Valley Museum Regional Heritage Fair takes place at Echo Centre and the Alberni Valley Museum this Friday, May 1 for judging and Saturday, May 2 for public viewing.

Port Alberni will once again host the regional fair for Vancouver Island North, drawing SD70 students as well as those from around the North Island.

“The fair promotes literacy as students, read for information, write about what they have learned, listen to judges’ questions and speak about their projects,” AV Museum educational curator Shelley Harding said.

“The heritage fair encourages students to explore issues of personal relevance and take pride in their heritage.”

On Saturday, community displays will be open in the morning for people’s choice voting. Awards will be handed out at 1 p.m. at Echo Centre, when Haa-huu-payak School students will also share aspects of their First Nations culture through dance.

For more info, call the AV Museum at 250-720-2523.
