VIDEO: Oak Bay mayor overcomes tipping to take teacup race

Readers share their images of the 2019 Oak Bay Tea Party

The annual Oak Bay Tea Party started with the traditionally popular parade and included swimming for some alongside plenty of food and fun under the sun for 2019.

Sunday events included the floating teacup race, where new mayors in the region faced off against Oak Bay Mayor Kevin Murdoch. Saanich Mayor Fred Haynes sank first, who promptly headed for Murdoch’s teacup to upend him into the chilly waters off Willows Beach. It became a swimming race after that, with Murdoch hitting the beach first to ring the bell and pull off the win for Oak Bay.
