Dear editor and community,

What a wonderful experience we had at the first annual Green Man Festival!!
We were overwhelmed by the support of Bowen Island this Saturday at our first annual Green Man Festival. In the rainy months, we met and planned and dreamed. Then the sun shone, the cove looked magical and people of all ages came out. Our hopes of a festival for kids of all ages were more than surpassed. It was, as it always is, a team effort.
