The longstanding crowd-gatherers of the Legion Parade, the Fireworks over Ferry Island, Beach Blast Volleyball, and Concerts in the Park never fail to please. Concerts features the best music from around the northwest, held outdoors in the centrepiece of Riverboat Days, George Little Park. Riverboat Days is an entire week to share the history, the culture and simply the unequalled natural setting around Terrace. So for 2017 encourage that child to join a crafts workshop at Heritage Park, sample delicious fare in the "Tastes of Terrace" tour, enter a team in the Riverboat Day's Soccer Tournament or join a walking tour of the downtown and learn some surprising stories about the area's history. From quiet and reflective art exhibits to loud and fast auto racing, that's Riverboat Days.
