TELEGRAPH COVE—The Seahorse Cafe and Gallery marked its ten-year anniversary with an Under the Sea Celebration on the patio here Sunday.

Marine detective Jackie Hildering watched over the patio party, complete with games, craft tables where kids could colour their own herrings, and a “Name the Humpback” contest.

Hildering later put on a puppet show with other members of the Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) and the Whale Interpretive Centre, highlighting marine life to an enthralled crowd. After the show, North Island Kayaks and the Coast Guard put on a display in the water that included kayak rolling and shooting water from the Coast Guard’s inflatable boat.

Proceeds from the event, including about $1,700 from a silent auction and an additional $500 from the Seahorse Cafe’s sales, went to the Marine Education and Research Society (MERS) and the Whale Interpretive Centre.

Hildering said she hopes that the celebration will become an annual event.
