Saturday and Sunday is the Festival on the Spit. There will be interesting boats on display shoreside and in the harbor, kid’s boatbuilding, and marine demonstrations including steam bending, caulking, and rigging and knot tying.
Saturday night at 6 p.m. the Society throws a party at Alice’s Champagne Palace in downtown Homer, 6 pm, admission $5. Alice's offers their fine menu and bar services, and there will be a live auction with auctioneer Bumppo Bremicker. Highlights of available items are a 14’ canoe and a one-person canoe modeled after the “Wee Lassie”, both built by the Society's own Norm Griffin. At 9 p.m. the “Rouges and Wenches,” a costumed group of rowdy and bawdy musicians and entertainers from Anchorage will close out the evening.
