“STEAMPUNK & FANTASY FUTURE ” is the theme of May Day 2016. Join your friends and neighbours in a big community picnic at Rebecca Spit, Saturday May 28th, 2016. 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!

MAY DAY is a volunteer-powered, non-commercial, traditional community event first held on Quadra in 1898. The Recreation Society Board of Directors thanks the many dozens of people who contribute to the event in big and little ways and wish everyone a happy, joy filled, sunny day.

The May Day Family dance is at The Community Centre and features Go Dog Go.
The doors open at 7:00 with the music starting at 7:30. Come out and support the Official Dance and a great local band!
