The Courtenay Legion will once again be the centre of all things gemstone this weekend.
The Courtenay Gem and Mineral Club, in conjunction with the Parksville Rock and Gem Club, will once again present the annual Gem and Mineral Show, April 18-19.
Show times are Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5 pm. and Sunday 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission is $2, and youth under 12 are admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult.
The Kid Zone Activity Area will provide creative and fun projects for youth to entertain themselves and build rock art to take home.
Our Rock Hound café will be serving up inexpensive hot or cold lunches, snacks, coffee and tea, and home baked treats to make your mouth water.
Don’t forget to bring along your camera to take photos of some of the beautiful displays, and every hour we will be doing draws to give away prizes to lucky show visitors.
Come and explore the world of gems, minerals, and fossils with club members.
