Shanty Days festival has an eventful second day

If you were in Algoma on Saturday, you would have seen many activities to participate in. The day began with an 8:00 am 5K walk/run along with a 9:00 am children superhero fun run where kids could enjoy the nice weather alongside their favorite heroes. Then if you made your way down to Crescent beach, you would have noticed the traditional Battle on the Beach volley competition was underway. Also beginning at 10 o’clock was the long-awaited return of the Arts N’ Crafts fair. With over 150 vendors, the area was full of awaiting customers. Second-time vendor Rachel from Grandpa Ron’s Workshop describes how it feels to finally be back at Shanty Days after last year’s cancellation.



After the Arts N’ Crafts fair drew many people into the streets, they started making their way to the parade route to watch the show. This year’s parade showcased both the Algoma Middle and High School bands, as well as an appearance from Thomas the Train. Shortly following the parade, most of the crowd made their way down to the official Shanty Days grounds for the free admittance from 11:00  am to 3:00 pm. There they found food stands from many of the local organizations and live music from the band Rocker.
