So tomorrow is the big day in St. John’s….the 193rd Regatta Day. The Royal St. John’s Regatta is North America‘s oldest annual sporting event dating back to 1816. If weather isn’t suitable the event is postponed until the next suitable day. Since Regatta Day is a civic holiday in St. John’s, this means that the weather actually determines whether or not workers have the day off – a matter sometimes complicated by late-night partying associated with the end of the George Street Festival the night before. (Locally known as Regatta Roulette)
Decided to drive downtown St. John’s this morning and swing up to Signal Hill and head back to my office via Quidi Vidi Lake. Randomly taking photos as I went. There are a great number of people out today. Most with camera’s so I can only assume tourist’s. Even as I drove up the road to Signal Hill the place was packed with people. Nothing to see up there though as the fog has it completely engulfed. No ocean view that’s for sure.
Tomorrow Quidi Vidi Lake will be surrounded with tens of thousands of people. Each visiting “the pond” for their own personal reasons. Whether it be family tradition, curious spectators, visiting tourists, family/friends of the rowers or just to head down for a game of chance at the concession booths – none will be disappointed.

Check out the St. John’s Farmers Market Saturday at the Lions Club Chalet. Located right behind the Remax Centre (Curling Club). 9am to 2pm. Lots of locally grown veggies, fruits, Newfoundland arts and crafts and paintings. They even have a Facebook Group “I support a weekly farmer’s market in downtown St. John’s”
Every summer in St. John’s at Signal Hill, military drills and music from the 1800s is featured. The Signal Hill Tattoo is now up and running. Check out the re-enactment of 18th Century military exercises with period costumes, guns and cannon fire this Saturday at the Signal Hill National Historic Site.
The Royal St. John’s Regatta is only a few weeks away. This Saturday on Quidi Vidi Pond the Time Trials will be taking place starting at 8am. The purpose of these Time Trials is to determine the makeup of each Regatta Day race based upon the times rowed by the crews participating in the Time Trial heats. Drop down and check out the local rowing crews and see all the hype.
The caplin are rolling! The caplin are rolling around the Avalon bringing hundreds of people to Logy Bay, Middle Cove, Outer Cove beaches. The presence of the caplin brings with them lots of whales! Check out this quick YouTube clip titled “Caplin in Newfoundland“. If you haven’t seen this phenomenon I highly encourage it. But hurry….they will not be around for much longer.
And of course….with this beautiful weather you can always enjoy a couple of hours chasing after a little white ball on a golf course. Newfoundland has a lot of terrific golf courses. My personal favorite is Clovelly Golf Course in East End St. John’s, (in the Clovelly Trails Sub division). Of course you can enjoy a scenic view of St. John’s from Admirals Green in Pippy Park. For a complete list of Newfoundland golf courses visit golfnewfoundland.ca or the Newfoundland and Labrador Golf Association.
