Yo-ho-ho, and a Bundle of Fun!
– Buccaneer Days is a time to celebrate Esquimalt
By Tim Morrison
Arrr, Matey! Yo-ho-ho, it’s that time of year again. It’s time for Esquimalt to strut its stuff, to show off our community spirit to ourselves and visitors alike. No public event defines Esquimalt bigger, better and more fun than our legendary Buccaneer Days. It is one of those community-wide celebrations that has something for everyone, from our youngest kids to our most seasoned seniors and all of us that fall somewhere in between.
Taking place this upcoming weekend of June 10 to June 12, this has become our community’s tradition for kicking-off the start of summer. This year’s events include a seniors’ barbeque, pancake breakfast, parade, beer gardens, food fairs, various sporting events, children’s activities, craft fair, community dance, a free movie night and even a pie plate/sky diving contest just to name a bit of what will surely be remembered as fun, fun, and more fun.
