MAY DAY on Quadra Island

May 28 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

GET READY FOR MAY DAY!!

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
…who does what, when
MAY DAY, MAY DAY, MAY DAY!!

The May Day theme is: “SEAS THE DAY!”

Think everything nautical; from marine life and sea creatures (real and fantasy), to anything and everything you love about our ocean; healthy oceans, beach clean-up, sailing the seas, pirates, mermaids, to seals or seagulls! Use your creativity and imagination to SEAS the day and help create the very best May Day!
Join your friends and neighbours in a big community picnic at Rebecca Spit, Saturday May 28th, 2022. Celebrate the coming of spring and summer with colour, costumes, floats, and music – the more zany and bizarre the better! Let your imaginations soar and unveil your creativity! The best way to get to the end of the Spit is on a float! DON’T forget to pack your own special picnic lunch (NO CONNCESSION this year). You could even win a prize for best looking picnic!
