THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR

As president of the Terrace Riverboat Days Society, I’d like to say Welcome to Riverboat Days 2016!

From the Opening Ceremonies on July 29 to ‘Get Dragon Boating’ on August 7, Riverboat Days has a little of everything to see and enjoy with family, friends and visitors.

What are your interests? We have sports, music, art, workshops, history, food, family entertainment and just for kids fun!

Of course we have the favourites – Concerts in the Park, the Legion’s Riverboat Days Parade, Fireworks and the Kitsumkalum 29th Annual Salmon Barbecue!

Returning this year, we are happy to see Black Belt Battles, and Freestyle Motocross Madness – with a snowmobile no less! We can’t forget the Street Hockey.

New for this year: First Nations Downtown Walking Tour; The Grand Trunk Hula Hoop Challenge, Movie in the Park – Paddington, The Power of Practice: Yoga and Meditation and even Opera! – Carmen.

Check out the ‘Official Riverboat Days Booklet’ at businesses or try our online schedule that is updated daily at www.riverboatdays.ca to see the incredible events offered over the 10 fun-filled days.

Riverboat Days would not be possible without local businesses, volunteers, service clubs, City of Terrace, Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, First Nations, LNG Canada, the Northern Development Initiative Trust and media.

Riverboat Days Society would like to thank everyone for helping the committee organize the 70 event full Riverboat Days week.

A big thank-you also to the committee, who go above and beyond every year.

They are the best!

Riverboat Days Committee welcomes the community and visitors from near and far to our area.

We wish you the best time ever and look forward to meeting you out and about enjoying the many events. Be safe and enjoy.
