Lac Seul has joined the neighbouring community of Hudson for a homecoming celebration in late June.
“We’re really close neighbours — we’re just on the other side of the lake,” said Lac Seul Chief Clifford Bull. “So we’re going to be doing a homecoming. All kinds of events are being planned.”
Lac Seul is planning a variety of events on June 25-26 in Kejick Bay, including a Lac Seul Summer Olympics for children on June 25-26 and Treaty Day on June 26.
A community baseball challenge and an evening mini powwow are planned for June 25 and pony rides will be available on June 26. Other events include fun castles for children, a comedy show, fireworks, a boat making contest, a fish fry and a music tribute to CCR at the Lac Seul Events Centre.
Hudson is also planning a variety of events, including an evening meet and greet at the Hudson Hall on June 27 and a bicycle fun ride from Sioux Lookout to Hudson with lunch included on June 28. The fun ride includes starts at Sioux Lookout, the junction of Hwy. 72 and the Leo Bernier Memorial Highway and the Pelican Falls turnoff.
A dance is planned for the evening of June 28 and a pancake breakfast for the morning of June 29. Other events include archaeological displays, children’s games, face painting, races, a soap box derby, an archery demonstration, a strawberry social, a hammer striking competition, a dunk tank and a pig roast.
