It’s Cultus Lake Day this Saturday and the day is packed with activities and entertainment.
Things kick off Saturday, June 22 at 8:30 a.m. with a pancake breakfast and events go all day until 10 p.m. with a fireworks display.
“Cultus Lake Day is a big event for locals and visitors alike. Families come for the day to have a lot of fun, connect with others, and enjoy the beauty of Cultus Lake Park,” says Joe Lamb, Cultus Lake Park Board chair and community events and engagement committee chair.
“Along with annual favourites such as the pancake breakfast, parade, children’s fun area and the farmers’ and artisan market, this year we have a bigger and better beverage and entertainment garden with a DJ and live bands throughout the day. It is going to be a great place to sit back, relax and enjoy some great music.”
