February in Tofino
February is a good month for
storm watching in Tofino, should the weather play along and deliver some mighty winds. The swells that are delivered by a storm front also make February a good month for surfing in Tofino. For those of us that want to keep indoors, there are a number of events in Tofino this month and
a couple of concerts.
Tofino Parks & Rec
The hard working crew at Parks and Recreation has another fantastic winter of events and activities to help you stay active, interested and happy.
Some of this months highlights are the Tuff Cup Floor Hockey Tournament on February 7 & 8 and the 3rd Annual Tuff City Dodgeball Tournament on February 14 & 15.
