July 21 Lake Superior Day Celebration

Our CoC TBay Chapter’s Blue Planet Committee will be hosting a “NO to Bottled Water – YES to Superior!” information booth from 10am until 5pm at a Lake Superior Day celebration on Sunday, July 21 at the Pool 6 Cruise Ship Dock.

In the early 80’s the Lake Superior Bi-national Forum initiated this basin-wide event to highlight the importance of Lake Superior on our  environment and economy. Since 2008, EcoSuperior has organized Thunder Bay’s celebration which features displays, activities and entertainment for the whole family. The Sorlandet, the oldest full rigged tall ship in operation, will be available for public deck tours. Say ‘No to Bottled Water and Yes to Superior’ – bring your reusable water bottle and fill up at the City’s Water Bar.
