The Nanaimo Record Show will return for its eighth year this weekend, this time boasting more than 43 eight-foot tables (or 500 feet) of records.

According to a press release, the show will be held Sunday, April 21, at the Bowen Park Activity Centre, 500 Bowen Rd., from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Event co-founder Jack Tieleman said he’s excited to once again see folks from the mainland visit the Island for their event.

“It’s a recognized record show across the province … It’s a great way to showcase our city, a little economic driver,” he said in the release.

The release continued to note that last year’s show was as diverse as one could image – offering rare Japanese psychedelic rock to favoured Led Zeppelin LPs.

General admission is $2, with children under 12 years old entering for free.
