It was another successful homecoming weekend at Christina Lake this past weekend. The town was abuzz with people and events going on at the beach and around town.

Friday saw the volunteer appreciation and social hosted by the Christina Gateway Development Association. Also on Friday, a clean dry boat wash station was set up by the stewardship society providing education on zebra and quagga mussels and how to keep them out of the lake.

Saturday kicked off with a by-donation pancake breakfast at the community hall. There was also a market outside the hall with dozens of vendors showing off everything from wood, arts, pottery, crafts, jewelry, local produce and more.

Several musical and dance acts performed throughout the day, first at the hall and later at the beach. Performers included Rae Dawn and the Eco Systems, Herb and Friends, Damian Alblas, Rara Avis Dancers, the Grand Forks Community Band, Les Folles Jambette, Sunshine Drive, Hip Sisters and Luminosity.

In addition to the music and dancing at the beach, there was the always-popular community barbecue hosted by the Christina Lake Volunteer Fire Department. There was also a family beach party with glow volleyball and glow station. The evening capped off with the “Light Up the Lake Boat Parade.”
