The 2013 Nanaimo Marine Festival and World Championship Bathtub Race pays homage to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s 50-year anniversary.

“This tribute by the Loyal Nanaimo Bathtub Society is an excellent way to celebrate the important contribution that Nanaimo Regional General Hospital has made to mid-Island residents and visitors over the past 50 years,” said Don Hubbard, board chairman, in a press release.

The salute will form the theme for this year’s Bathtub Sail Past On Wheels Fun Parade on July 27. The marine festival starts July 26 and wraps up July 28 with the 47th annual Great International World Championship Bathtub Races.
