Gerald Rabbers and his son Bryson enjoy the Brentwood Bay Festival Parade last June.

Pancakes, musical entertainment, a parade and more will be taking place this Saturday at the Brentwood Bay Festival in Pioneer Park.

One of the organizers, Ginny Alger said the Festival sees between four or five thousand people come through the park on the day.

“We’ve gotten really good support from the community,” she told the PNR.

Put on by the Brentwood Bay Community Association, the Festival will begin with a pancake breakfast at 8:00 a.m. put on by the Central Saanich Lion’s Club.

The Brentwood Bay Festival Parade will then proceed at 10:00 a.m. beginning at Bayside School and travelling along Wallace Drive up to West Saanich Road, past Pioneer Park and then on to the roundabout at Verdier Avenue.

Opening ceremonies will follow the parade at Pioneer Park at 10:45 p.m. and will then proceed with local entertainment for the duration of the afternoon.

Alger said the Festival is also for kids too, with many fun things to do and take part in on site, like mini golf and bouncy castles.

Panorama Recreation Centre will be doing face painting, while Beacon Community Services will be taking part in Kids’ Art in the Park.

Many vendors will also be on site along with the Peninsula Country Market and more.

Patrons of the community can also look forward to the Strawberry Dance put on in a joint effort by the North and South Saanich Agricultural Society, the Brentwood Bay Community Association and the Saanichton Village Association. The Dance will take place at the Saanich Fairgrounds on June 11 at 7:30 p.m. and is a fundraiser for the Saanich Fair barn roof along with the Music in the Park stage. Tickets are $15 each and $25 for a pair.
