PORT MCNEILL—The summer fun continued last weekend in Port McNeill as the town played host to the annual OrcaFest celebrations.

The town filled up Saturday as revellers came out to enjoy the parade before breaking out to take in the show-n-shine at Gus’ Bar and Grill, the kids’ play area by the waterfront, the plethora of food and vendor stalls throughout town and the live music from in front of the Gate House Community Theatre.
