Cranberry fest promises fun


On June 21, Yellow Point Cranberrie­s will host its second annual cranberry blossom festival. The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and features an old-style farmers’ and artisans’ market. There will be tours to see blossoming cranberry plants and also hayrides around the 17.5-hectare farm. During the day local chefs will serve up cranberry-infused treats, and there will also be live music and child-friendly activities.

Admission is by donation to the Vancouver Island branch of the B.C. Cancer Foundation. Yellow Point Cranberrie­s is just outside of Ladysmith. Take the Cedar Road exit off the TransCanad­a Highway and then turn right on Yellow Point Road.
