RIVERBOAT DAYS 2015: Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 9
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 two full days of the best music from around the northwest, held outdoors in the centrepiece of Riverboat Days, George Little Park. What a treat for the 2014 Saturday evening headliner: Rock of Ages brought 3 top-notch tribute bands covering the music of Heart, Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top! The Sunday program closed with renowned folk singer/songwriter Mark Perry!
Every year a sprinkling of new events adds more vitality to Riverboat Days. This year the “4600 Block” was abuzz with music, art and activities in the first ever Street Medley, a celebration of schooling history and the 100th anniversary of Kitsumgallum School plus a Charity Poker Tournament. And long-term fans of Riverboat Days savoured the return of the Kitsumkalum Salmon Barbecue. But the ultimate adrenaline rush was flying high above the Skeena Mall—the aerial acrobatics of FMX Motocross Madness!!
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 Men’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.
