Mark your calenders today... P-ART-Y on the Drive 2014 is Sunday, September 7th from 1:00 -5:00pmWhen Parksville's Resort Drive Community sets out to throw a party, they do it up right.
2012 marked the first year for this event attracting over 2000 people; more than double what organizers were hoping for. Never ones to rest on their laurels, for P-ART-Y on the Drive 2013, the group set their sites on attracting twice that number and they did it!
Actually, the event, which was held on Sunday, September 8th saw over 4500 people coming from all over Vancouver Island and beyond.
With that much success there is only one thing to do... grow Vancouver Island's biggest street party even bigger and better so next year will see even more artists and activities.
This year we tried some new things and they worked. For example, we invited some non-profit groups such as the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association and everyone loved Bardo the Owl. We also included a Photo Contest and we are pleased to announce the winner of that was Karen Chandler with her beautiful shot of P-ART-Y on the Drive-bringing art, music and food together in nature.
