Cultus Lake Day 2016 is Saturday

Cultus Lake will be bursting with energy this weekend for the annual Cultus Lake Day.

This community event on Saturday, June 11 is known for drawing hundreds to the family-friendly beachside community. Neighbours and visitors alike will share the sunshine as the full-day festivities unfold.

The Cultus Lake Fire Hall is kicking things off with a pancake breakfast starting at 9 a.m., by donation.

Head over to Main Beach to explore the Cultus Lake Day market from 10 a.m to 3 p.m., featuring home decor, jewellery, preserves, toys and more. Be sure to check out the old-school classic cars as well.

Make way for the main event as the parade begins at 10 a.m., taking off from Cultus Lake School and making its way to Main Beach.

Don’t miss the judging of the bike decorating contest at 12:15 p.m., when you’ll also discover which dogs take home awards for being the hairiest or best dressed, among other noble titles.

Satisfy your lunch-time hunger with tasty grub from the food trucks on-site or from the Lakeside Beach Club.

Kids can enjoy a clown show, drumming workshop and face painting, and let loose in the bouncy castle. Adults will have access to refreshments in the beer garden, open until 9:30 p.m.

The gazebo will be home to several live acts throughout the afternoon and evening, including local performers like Head Over Heels and many more.

The festivities conclude with a stunning and colourful grand finale of fireworks above main beach at 10 p.m.

Public paid parking is available in multiple lots near Main Beach.
