Take to the sky for final Our Town in Port Alberni

Last summer evening event takes place at Harbour Quay

Take to the sky for the city of Port Alberni’s final Our Town celebration of the summer.

Enjoy high-flying adventures at Harbour Quay and make paper airplanes, rocket ships and kites. There will be bean bag tosses, a hockey shoot, face painting and more. A treasure hunt will be sponsored by Buy-Low Foods, and local dance and music groups will provide entertainment. Bring your hockey sticks for a floating hockey game on the pier against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

Children can cool off with refreshing drinks, courtesy of McDonalds, and enjoy tasty popcorn sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. The Port Alberni Toy Run is the gold sponsor of this event.

The community will join together for this evening of fun and friendship on Tuesday, Aug. 21 from 6-8 p.m.
