HYDE CREEK — Fun, food and more fun was the order of the day Saturday as Hyde Creek Day returned to the rural neighbourhoods of Hyde Creek and Nimpkish Heights just south of Port McNeill.

Organized by Guylaine Longpré after a three-year hiatus, Hyde Creek Day featured a parade, horse-riding demonstrations and games by the Reinforest Riders Equestrian Club, kids games and prizes, barbecue, food and merchandise vendors.

Sunny skies blessed the event, held at the recreation centre arena, ballfield and hall.
