At Sandbanks Provincial Park August at Sandbanks Provincial Park, Lakeshore Lodge Day Use Area Join us for this popular annual 1890’s style picnic, with games, lemonade and corn at the site of the old Lakeshore Lodge on West Point. This event is organized by the Friends of Sandbanks. If you plan to come to The County during this week, then attending the Lakeshore Lodge Day is the “must” day to visit. For many years, the Park has sponsored this family-fun day, based on activities that happened in the 1890’s at the site of the former Lakeshore Lodge. Park staff dress in period garb, and games for all ages are encouraged! Three-legged races, egg-and-spoon races, nail-hammering, tug-o-wars and more, are just a few of the activities that recreate the activities of tourists who spent their holidays at the “coolest spot” in Prince Edward County almost a century ago at the Lakeshore Lodge. Local farm-fresh corn and lemonade are on offer at great prices, and Sandbanks Park staff dress and act the 1890’s part! Volunteers from the Friends of Sandbanks and the Prince Edward County Museums will be present… please feel free to ask them anything about the amazing history of the area! […]
