The traditional fireworks show rounded out the Filomi Days weekend.

One powered-up weekend

Port Hardy celebrates annual Filomi Days weekend festivities.

PORT HARDY-—The first of the big community festivals was held in Port Hardy last weekend and set the bar high for the rest of the summer.

This year the event tipped its hat to the past year’s progress on the windfarm project with the theme of ‘Power Up!’

And powered up the weekend certainly was.

From fishing derbies to fireworks, slo-pitch to stocks, there was something for everyone on offer this weekend. In fact, the only real issue was choosing which of the plethora of events to take in.

Huge kudos to all who got involved and volunteered their time and efforts into making the weekend and all its events so successful.

After attempting to take in as much as we possibly could of the festivities, we at the Gazette could do with powering down for a day or two.
