Central Saanich Family Fest is this Saturday

Fifth annual event hosted at the Peninsula Country Market at the Saanich Fairgrounds.

CENTRAL SAANICH — Families are invited to take part in the fifth annual Central Saanich Family Festival, this Saturday, Aug. 15.

Put on by the Saanichton Village Association, the event takes place during the Peninsula Country Market at the Saanich Fairgrounds off Stelly’s Cross Road. Bob Thompson, president of the Market, says they clear space each year for the Family Festival, providing a lively place for families, activities and music.

“The Village Association used to do this event in area parks,” he said. “There was an overlap so about three years ago it was decided to kill two birds with one stone and combine the two events into one.”

The Central Saanich Family Festival will be at the Market Saturday, Aug. 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
