The ongoing cycle of the COVID-19 pandemic has once again put Prince Rupert's popular summer festival SEAFEST into the virtual world, with the Special Events Society providing the heads up on the June event through their website.
A notice atop the SEAFEST page of the Special Events Website shares the news and fate of the 42nd annual community festival, with organizers noting that they are working on the virtual project and will be sharing the details on what they have in mind in the weeks ahead.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic all in-person Seafest events have been cancelled for 2021. We are busy working on some awesome virtual events to take place instead, so keep checking back!
Last year saw the prelude to the North Coast Summer make its virtual debut, that through a virtual parade that provided for a chance to share some community spirit in challenging times, the theme last year a hopeful one of the tide turning, something we are all still awaiting.
With the government continuing to enforce a range of COVID related measures related to crowds and gatherings in communities across the province, the decision was probably already made for organizers, who will now turn their attention to building on last years virtual model.
The event in its virtual form will take place over the weekend of June 11-13
