Port picks August 29th for Phase Two Celebration
The Port of Prince Rupert is planning a party and all of the North Coast is invited!
A community celebration for the Grand Opening of the DP World Prince Rupert Fairview Terminal's Phase Two North expansion is set for August 29th, with a range of activities, speeches and a chance to explore the container port site to take place from 12:30 to 4:30.
Among some of the events that those in attendance can take in are a community BBQ, musical entertainment, interactive activities for children and a close up look at the new terminal.
The Port does advise that there is very limited parking on-site at the DP World Terminal, which can be accessed by way of Highway 16 and McMillan Road, for those that plan to take a car they suggest carpooling as one option.
With that limited parking for the public a better option might be the shuttle transportation that the Port and DP have arranged. A shuttle bus service be in place for the day, with transportation between the Jin Ciccone Civic Centre and the Terminal to take place between 12:15 and 4:30.
Updates on the plans for the end of August will be made available through a website page created by the Port for the event as well as through the Prince Rupert Port Authority Facebook page
