The Cowichan Lake area celebrated Canada Day in style Sunday, July 1.

With the sun finally making a confident appearance, everyone dashed outdoors to enjoy daytime events at Lake Cowichan, Honeymoon Bay, and Youbou, where cake, a market, speeches, flag raising, and other celebrations were the order of the day.

And, as both MP Alistair MacGregor and MLA Sonia Furstenau said, “the day’s not finished until you’ve been to Mesachie Lake”.

Skydome field was the place to be that evening for entertainment, games, a bouncy slide, water fun with the fire department, two fabulous cakes, and lots more.

Finally, lots of folks dressed in their best Canada Day gear headed up to Laketown Ranch for the last night of Laketown Rock, which featured Sass Jordan, Kim Mitchell, and Creedence Clearwater Revisited.
