The 13th annual Cordova Bay Day, held on Saturday, June 25th, 2016 was a wonderful community event with well over 1,000 attendees having an enjoyable time on a sunny and pleasant summer day. This year’s event was held at St. David by the Sea Anglican Church, with activities also happening at the Cordova Bay Plaza and Mattick’s Farm.
At St. David by the Sea Anglican Church, there was a market-place of local vendors and businesses, information booths from Saanich Fire and several other organizations, live music by the band “And Then There Was”, baked goods from the Cordova Bay Pre-School, vintage and contemporary fire trucks, free popcorn, and kids entertainment (bounce slide, face painting and balloon twisting).
At The Plaza, there were hot dogs and ice cream, a kids inflatable obstacle course, a vintage car show, and the Drivewise driving simulator.
Mattick’s Farm featured the Red Barn Market Barnbque, mini-golf, art exhibitions, and a sidewalk sale.
A number of Cordova Bay residents signed up as new members of the CBA.
It was great to see so many Cordova Bay residents, as well as visitors from other communities in the Capital Region District, at our community celebration.
