I have tourists next door who pulled into town this past Thursday. After friendly neighborly conversation, they apprised me that they travelled to Terrace to camp out in a trailer in my neighbor's driveway so they can take in all the RiverBoat Day Festivities.
This is definitely Tourism Season. Let's put on our best face...pick up litter when we come across it...help out a lost tourist.
The City will be congested with traffic for the next while. Let's give the other driver some courtesy leeway with a friendly wave and a smile.
RiverBoat Days serves as a prime opportunity to showcase our City to visitors as a friendly, enticing place to return to in visiting form...or to choose to relocate to.
Happy RiverBoat Days, everyone:)
Meanwhile, out at Kitsumkalum....

Women, men and children are busily preparing for the much-anticipated, annual, Salmon Barbecue.
The sockeye is as fresh as can be, and will be sliced into hefty, tasty portions for your eating pleasure. As usual, the potatoe salad will be made fresh, from only the finest ingredients.......and prepared by the best cooks in the world.
I see the barbecue pit is ready, and ample wood already there. Kitsumkalum men and women (volunteer firemen too!) will tend the barbecue pit all day (no matter how hot it gets).
Refreshments, smiles and hugs will be plentiful.
We may fight like cats and dogs over many political, Tsimshian issues, but we all hold our Annual Salmon Barbecue very near and dear to our hearts. It is one of the few opportunities for us to mingle with you all, and share our nutritious bounty. All who participate, do so proudly.
So, after the River Boat Days Parade, make your way out to Kitsumkalum.......and enjoy!
