Chemainus completes the blockbuster summer event hat trick this weekend.
Following the Summer Fest and Canada Day celebrations on the previous two weekends, attention turns to the Chemainus and District Chamber of Commerce’s Chemainus Giant Street Market Saturday. It begins at 8 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m.
It’s a well-loved summer tradition in town, with all sorts of unique vendors lining Willow Street. There will be a wide variety of new and used products, goods and services.
Meanwhile, the Wednesday Farmers’ Market continues every week at Waterwheel Park.
The venue provides the ideal location for the sale of Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands local goods.
The Chamber reports in 2017, Chemainus welcomed more than 51,000 visitors and 950 tour buses into Waterwheel Park and the Chemainus Visitor Centre between the months of May and September.
The number is only expected to increase as the tourism industry continues to thrive and the Chamber is excited to see what 2018 will bring, with the prime time of the summer now in full swing.
