Holiday Events 2018

We had such a fantastic response to our Summer Calendar that we figured we would put together a Holiday one too!

On the Event poster you will find as many events as we could find – we even put a call out to you to make sure we didn’t miss a thing – to take you through the 2018 holiday season in and around Campbell River!

Because there was just SO much going on in this great city we call home, we had to keep the information as simple as possible and we still have 3 pages! You will see what the event is, the date and time it’s happening and a link for you to punch into your device of choice to find all the little details.

We hope you find this helpful and fun to print off and have in your home! Leave us a comment so we can find out if this is something you’d like us to continue or if there is anything different you’d like to see.

See you all out there!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Canada Day & Summer in Campbell River 2018

Cruise Ship view from Campbell River waterfront.

This Summer Shoreline Real Estate Team has put together a Schedule of Events to help you make the most of your Summer in Campbell River! You can view and download our calendar here:

Shoreline Summer Calendar

Our calendar kicks off Summer with Canada Day in Campbell River but there is some exciting things in store at Spirit Square downtown on June 30 including a BBQ at 5pm put on by Greig Seafood at the same time as the Tyee Chevrolet Car Show (5-9pm), Country Music live by Jackson Hollow (7-9pm) and a Ridgerider ‘Best Western Dressed’ contest at 7:45pm.

Canada Day preparations to celebrate have already begun and the endless hours put into this community celebration every year is nothing short of amazing; businesses, volunteers and the City band together ensuring that Canada Day is an event for the entire community to enjoy.

As always we are beyond excited for the whole day of events as there is plenty to do, but a few highlights are:

Rotary Canada Day Parade begins at 3:00pm! You can find details and the parade map route HERE>>

Pancake Breakfast Located at Frank James Park (Willow Point) Details about this can be found HERE>>

Huck Finn Small Fry Fishing Derby Located at the Discovery Pier Details about this can be found HERE>>

Fireworks Located at Robert V. Ostler Park (Foreshore) Details about this can be found HERE>>

A complete list of activities on Canada Day can be viewed and downloaded here: Canada-Day-2018

Last year Shoreline Real Estate Team supported and sponsored the Discovery Passage Aquarium on their float which one first prize!  Although the Aquarium is not contributing a float this year, we still believe education about our oceans and how to preserve and keep marine life safe, is something that should be taught from an early age. This summer the Discovery Passage Aquarium has plenty to offer:

  • Instead of a float on Canada Day, they will be open until 9:30PM with face painting outside for children with an aquarium admission;
  • They will be celebrating their Birthday onSunday, July 8th. You can win prizes for coming to the aquarium dressed as a sea creature and join in for cupcakes at 12:00PM! Half off admission for the entire day;
  • On July 15th they are hosting Explorer Lab Crafts Day where you can visit the explorer lab for crafts with a by donation admission; and
  • they have their Summer Camps available. You can find out about the dates, cost and details HERE>> 

In our calendar we have included some local businesses and their summer events and camps such as Holly Hill Farm, the Campbell River Country Golf & Country Club, various local markets, and some WOW days for cruises sailing through the Discovery Passage. We consider WOW days as any more than 3 ships passing in one night. However, if you are an avid watcher, you can view the entire schedule HERE>>.

Shoreline Summer Calendar

On July 2 Spirit Square is alive from 12 – 4 for Health with a Heart where there will be face painting, live music, dancing and a bake sale to name a few. In fact, Spirit Square will be playing music every Tuesday at 12 noon with music throughout the Summer!

Keep in mind this is not an exhaustive list of events, we are sure there are many more things happening in and around the area we just have not yet heard about but what we encourage is that you get out and enjoy Campbell River and the Community this Summer and all it has to offer! If you are new to the area we are more than happy to recommend some must see spots to take in as much of the natural surroundings you can.

Now get out there and enjoy all that Campbell River has to offer this summer!

Let Us Introduce You To: B.C. Fishing Charters

B.C. Fishing Charters is run by Bryan, born and raised right here in beautiful Campbell River.

Bryan has been fishing the waters near Campbell River since he was old enough to walk and has been working as a fishing guide for over 25 years.  Bryan recently upgraded his boat which is located in discovery harbour and ready to explore out of Campbell River, Nootka Sound, and Gold River.

ABOUT THE BOAT…

Bryan’s boat is a very comfortable 24 foot Grady White Gulfstream with twin 150HP  4stroke engines that make for a quiet and clean ride. The boat is fully loaded with radar, sounder/gps, VHF and all required safety gear.

It comfortably seats 2-4 guests and is fully equipped with gear, life jackets and even a toilet! A covered seating area provides shade and rain cover for enjoying in any weather. All fishing gear and tackle is included, but if you have a lucky rod & reel you are welcome to bring it along, just don’t forget your license.

In the off season Bryan has worked at the local Quinsam Salmon Hatchery since he was 18 years old.  This is where he finds his work most fulfilling as he gets to raise and release millions of wild salmon back into our waters.

Bryan just so happens to be available June 9 if you’re looking to get a group of friends together and hire a guide…but don’t wait too long..he may have already booked up while you sat here reading about him….

Signature Oil and Vinegar is an on tap Tasting Bar featuring fresh, organic extra virgin olive oil and barrel aged Italian balsamic vinegars.  The olives are harvested slightly under ripe when the anti-oxidant count is the highest. The fruit is cold pressed at 69 degrees Fahrenheit within four hours of being picked. All of the fused and infused oils are fresh twice a year, as the harvest changes from Northern to Southern hemisphere.  The oils are independently analyzed and chemistry is posted. Customers at Tyee Plaza can be confident in the quality of what they are buying.

The white and dark balsamic vinegars come from Modena, Italy and are barrel aged 12 to 18 years.

The oils and vinegars at Signature make amazing salad dressings, pasta sauces, bread dippers, and anything you can imagine for grilling, broiling, or sautéing vegetables, meat, chicken, game meat, fish, or shellfish.

The store also carries truffle, almond, walnut and sesame oil, as well as a wonderful selection of gourmet products from around the world. Everything in the store is available to taste before purchase, and prices start at $5.

This is food they way it was 100 years ago, the way it is meant to be – fresh, pure, and simple.
