The Port Alberni Port Authority will open up the waterfront to the public with a Port Day celebration on Saturday, May 28.

Residents and visitors alike will be able to take in dozens of activities along the PAPA-owned section of Port Alberni’s waterfront, including the soon-to-be renamed ‘Somass Strip’ boardwalk between the Somass Mill and Fisherman’s Wharf.

Construction on the boardwalk be finished by then, according to port authority officials, and the new name—chosen through a public contest—will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

More details on the celebration will be forthcoming later this month.
