We always look forward to what the month is going to bring. It may be a boat show, arts and crafts, to a building used for sleeping scouts.

Attended the World Ward carving championship convention Lots of parking, easy to get around the facility. Go straight out the back of the center and have a nice walk by the bay. Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the outdoors.

Make sure to park at the convention center and not on any of the nearby private lots to other establishments. Saw plenty of people getting towed.
