It’s time for the Museum at Campbell River’s Steam Donkey to roar!  In celebration of Labour Day, Monday, September 3, from 12 noon to 3pm, the Museum will fire up its steam donkey in honour of the island’s rich logging history.  It’s an amazing sight to see this old workhorse (er, donkey!) of the forest all steamed up.  As part of the festivities, a blacksmith’s forge will be on hand for demonstration.  The Museum’s amazing Lego collection will be outdoors for the kids (and parents) to play with.  Plus, ‘ChalkMan’ himself, Mr. Alex Witcombe, will be present demonstrating his chalk talents on the sidewalk.  Rumour has it that he will also bring along his ChalkCar for fun, a car famously known as ‘Chalk My Ride’ which the community is invited to help decorate.  Free coffee will be available.  Inside the Museum will be Lego displays along with the Tyee Fishing exhibit.  This is sure to be fun for the whole family!  Head to the Museum this Labour Day!
