So much happening at Heritage Park during Riverboat Days. On Wednesday night it is Rivers Speak poetry reading. See the memo under "Updates."(July 30)
Starting the August long weekend, Riverboat Days is the largest community festival in northwest British Columbia, highlighting the culture and heritage of the area. The longstanding crowd-gatherers of the Legion Parade, the Fireworks over Ferry Island , Beach Blast Volleyball, and Concerts in the Park never fail to please. Concerts features the best music from around the northwest, held outdoors in the centrepiece of Riverboat Days, George Little Park. What a treat for the 2015 Saturday evening headliner: Kenny Shields & Streetheart--Juno award winners and a string of gold and platinum records! And this year's Fireworks will be better than ever thanks to additional corporate sponsorship. (see Updates)
2014 saw the return of Freestyle Motocross Madness, in which fans witnessed unbelievable aerial acrobatics over Skeena Mall. We are thrilled to report they are back again this year, Saturday, August 1, with an even stronger line-up!! Special this year, and for a younger crowd, renowned Story Theatre of Victoria will be performing two plays that promise education, lots of fun and audience participation. And Riverboat Days starts this year with a kick. Elite Black Belts will showcase top ranked Canadian talent in the martial art of Taekwondo.
Riverboat Days is an entire week to share the history, the culture and simply the unequalled natural setting around Terrace. So for 2015 encourage that child to join a crafts workshop at Heritage Park, sample delicious fare in the "Tastes of Terrace" tour, enter a team in the Riverboat Day's Soccer Tournament or join a walking tour of the downtown and learn some surprising stories about the area's history. From quiet and reflective art exhibits to loud and fast auto racing, that's Riverboat Days.
