Parksville Museum Presents

Craig Bay Day: Thursday, May 19th from 4-6:00 pm

A Blast from the Past

Forge ahead into the future with us on Craig Bay Day! In addition to special guests, the Craig Bay Elastic Band, and the Gourmet Hot Dog Vendor, our honorary “resident” blacksmiths will be on hand to demonstrate the art and the science of their craft.

Early Parksville settlers relied heavily on blacksmiths to provide them with everything from horseshoes and plows to hunting knives. Today, these skilled blacksmiths continue that tradition by making beautiful knives, swords and decorative objects from reclaimed metal.

Get ready to pack up your lawn chair, BYOB, and join the fun at CB Day on Thursday May 19 from 4-6:00 pm. Although this is a free event, please RSVP on or before by May 12th to either Sylvia Martin or John Wearing:
