The 25th Annual Legion Fishing Derby

On August 1 & 2 the Legion will be holding their legendary derby. You would be hard pressed to find a longer running tradition in Tofino than the Legion Derby. There's been 3 generations of Tofitians out on the water angling for the big fish that gets them the big prize which, as always rpm and Mercury have come through with a portable Mercury outboard. If you don't catch the biggest one there are plenty of amazing prizes up for winning for the top 3 fish in each species category. The action on land is down at the Method Marine dock Saturday from noon to 8pm sharp and Sunday from noon to 4pm sharp. Followed up by the awards ceremony and salmon barbecue on Sunday evening. For registration info, contest rules and tickets drop by Method Marine, Jay's Clayoquot Ventures or RMP.

The 9th Annual Tofino Lantern Festival

A Tofino Favourite is back once again this Sunday, August 30. This event really brings out the best in our community. There's something there for all ages to wonder at and enjoy. The setting is spectacular in the Botanical Gardens and with this year's acoustic concert it should be magical.
