Activities start at 11am and include Arts and Crafts, Kids Rides, Bouncies, Entertainment, Performances, Face Painting, Vendors, and much more downtown at Maffeo Sutton Park.
At 1pm sharp the Nanaimo Heritage Festival Parade begins, and this year’s theme is all about the kids! Starting at the top of Victoria Road, the parade will make its way through the downtown core and down past Maffeo Sutton Park.
