Ladysmith Seafood Fest posptoned until 2014

The Ladysmith Maritime Society has postponed Seafood Fest, but plans are well underway for Kid's Pirate Day and Maritime Heritage Days.

The Ladysmith Maritime Society (LMS) has postponed the Ladysmith Seafood Fest, but plans are already underway to include this new feature in the 2014 Ladysmith Maritime Festival.

“Unforeseen difficulties have prevented that from occurring, but we can promise a spectacular seafood event next year,” the society states in a press release. “The Ladysmith Maritime Society thanks the Ladysmith Seafood Fest Committee for all the hard work they have already done and for their continued dedication in planning next year’s event.”

The LMS is still going ahead with two  celebrations in June.

The first is Ladysmith Kid’s Pirate Day, which will be held Saturday, June 1 at the LMS Community Marina. Children of all ages are urged to don their pirate  hats, grab their swords and join Captain Jack and his crew for a day of free fun activities including a petting zoo, pirate clowns, face painting, pirate crafts, the popular Kinsmen Bullhead Derby, and more.

Maritime heritage takes the spotlight the following weekend during Ladysmith Maritime Heritage Days Friday, June 7, starting at 7 p.m., and Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be guest speakers, videos, demonstrations, displays and much more.
