Ocean Park Day ‘definitely’ a success

A change to the date of a long-running tradition in Ocean Park is being hailed a success.

A change to the date of a long-running tradition in Ocean Park is being hailed a success.

Organizers of the Ocean Park Business Association’s Ocean Park Day – held Saturday in and around 128 Street and 16 Avenue – said this week that a decision to move the 14th annual event to Aug. 17 from its usual June time slot was “definitely” a good one.

There was “great talent, lots of energy, good crowds,” said event chair (and Peace Arch News ad rep) Kathi Nicholson.

Nicholson said two years of poor weather on the festival’s June date prompted the change. Crowds that turned out Saturday enjoyed a warm breeze and overcast skies.

Festivities included face-painting, music, gymnastics demonstrations, a marketplace and giveaways.
