Alert Bay hosted its annual SeaFest/MusicFest/ArtFest celebrations last weekend.

ALERT BAY—Hundreds descended on Cormorant Island under blue skies last weekend as Alert Bay hosted its annual SeaFest/MusicFest/ArtFest celebrations.

This year the theme was Treasure Island and featured Kids Got Talent, crochet, Minute To Win It and Spaghetti Eating contests, as well as vendors, top-class musical acts, the Salmon Run, talented local artists and — fittingly — performances from the Purple Pirate.
