PHOTOS: Sicamous families have a blast on the beach

Family Fun Day features cardboard boat racing, talent show and community BBQ

Families were front and centre in Sicamous this past weekend.

Family Fun Day, an annual event focusing on kid-friendly activities and featuring a barbecue put on by district staff and council members, took over Beach Park on Saturday, Aug. 5.

Bouncy castles, an inflatable bike race course and foam pit entertained children while displays from Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station #106 Shuswap and other emergency personnel provided demonstrations and information, complete with ambulance sirens.

The day’s competitions, including sandcastle building, cardboard boat racing and children’s talent show, were judged in the late afternoon.
