Waterfront to play host for 18th Annual National Aboriginal Day

Update: Owing to the inclement weather today, the events have been moved to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre starting at Noon.

Prince Rupert's festival season continues this week with the celebration of National Aboriginal Day tomorrow at the city's Rotary Waterfront Park.

The event starts at Noon hour and will feature cultural dancers, traditional foods and activities for the entire family through the eight hours of celebration.

The main stage will be the site for many of the performances, including the music of the Nassville Five and Dixie Dead Shake as part of the events set for Prince Rupert, as the North Coast joins communities across the nation in recognizing and celebrating Aboriginal people from coast to coast to coast.

The Kwinitsa Museum stage will be the centre of attraction when
National Aboriginal Day gets underway on Tuesday at Rotary Waterfront Park

Should the weather not cooperate with Tuesday's plans for the waterfront, the event will be moved to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

The Full schedule of events planned for the day can be found below:
