27th Annual Courtenay and District Fish & Game Outdoor Show taking place this weekend

June is here and so is the 27th Annual Outdoor Show of the Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association out at Comox Lake.

The annual event takes place on-site at the grounds just off Colake Road, June 1-2, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

Admission and parking is free, but we do ask that you bring either Comox Valley Food Bank donations of non-perishable goods or a cash donation.

Visit our wild west town of Boomtown and try shooting or watch some demos by our very own champion, Whistlin Will.

The Shotgun and Black Powder facilities will offer an opportunity to try the sports. Archery is also one of the most increasingly popular family recreational sports to try. Ride the hay wagons to various areas of the property as much as you want. Be prepared: Some of the masked bad guys from out of the wild west might hold up your wagon!

On the lower grounds you will find exhibitors indoors and outside, children’s activities, food, beer garden, bake/plant sale, etc.

Head to the Club Tent for Activity Tickets. The very popular helicopter flights will be available by 49 North.

This community event is sponsored by 97.3 The Eagle, Quality Foods, Brian McLean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd, and John’s Your Independent Grocer.
