Metchosin Day ended in a success for the rural community on Sunday, Sept. 8.
The event has been going on for more than 50 years, drawing people from around the region with more than 100 vendors, food and entertainment.
Young entrepreneurs were encouraged to get involved in a new feature this year. Children under the age of 12 were invited to bring a card table, chair, or umbrella to sell homemade or locally grown wares and produce on the village green.
The front field of the municipal grounds featured classic cars and motorcycles. Metchosin Equestrian Society held events with local riders, horses, trainers, and coaches. Old Barn Books brought books on the history of Metchosin. These events and others highlighted the special elements of rural life.
