First, starting Thursday night is a relative new comer to the coast. In it's second year, The Underdog Art Festival raises money and awareness for local ecological initiatives through local art, fashion, music and more all at The Marine West Motel's Harbour Lounge. More details HERE and on the poster below (if you can read it :P)
Sunday night is Lantern Festival in The Tofino Botanical Gardens, repeatedly mentioned as a favourite by locals it's a magical family friendly event. There is some more information on The Raincoast Education Society's website as well as their Facebook page. If you want to see some photos I took from last year's lantern festival check out our blog post HERE. I've got a few samples below;
Finally, 2 other festivals that aren't far off.
-The Ucluelet Salmon Ladder Derby's Salmon festival is September 9th this year... it should be a blast! Find more information at www.uclueletsalmonladderderby.com
-The Carving on The Edge Festival will be later in September, look for updates on their site as we get closer to game time
