Events on Pender Island - Victoria Day Long Weekend May 15-18

Real Estate Agent with Dockside Realty Ltd

Well, the weatherman says that the sun is's still a bit gray over here on Pender, but it's definitely warmer than yesterday.  Yesterday, we actually had a fire in our woodstove.  A fire in May! That's the first time I've been able to say that in the five years since we moved here. 

Hardly a big deal given the weather related events in other parts of the world, but my wife is getting a bit impatient for the warmer weather -- she has tomatoes and sunflowers bursting out of their seedling pots and ready to go into the garden.  Get it together weather!

We have been promised a hot sunny weekend, along with the rest of southern BC, though, so you may want to gather the family together for a weekend of springtime camping here on Pender.  As always, there's lots of stuff to do.  Walks in the woods, a paddle on the lake or coastline, and of course, events planned by our very active community groups.  There's something for everyone.

Thursday, May 15:

  • 7:30pm - Film Night at the Hall presents December Boys - Four orphan boys who have grown to be the closest of friends find themselves competing for the attention of the same family. (Australian)
