June's calendar of celebrations flips to Thurdsay's National Aboriginal Day

Prince Rupert's waterfront will once again be the focus for celebration, with Thursday, June 21st the day for the 20th observation of National Aboriginal Day, set to run from Noon until 8 PM.

A range of activities are planned for the day at the Rotary Waterfront Park, with cultural dancers, music and family activities the focus of the eight hours to celebrate and recognize Aboriginal people across the nation.

Along with the family events, those attending the Prince Rupert event have an opportunity to collect on a range of door prizes to be offered throughout the day.

Should the weather prove not to cooperate with the day's plans, events will be moved to the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre complex on McBride Street.
