Views of Fernie: Canada Day

Did you see the fireworks in Fernie? We didn’t! I was reading a book in my nice warm, dry, cozy bed. But now that I see Todd Weselake’s photos of the big event I wish….No. No. I don’t. I was happy in my bed. But these are some very cool pics of Fernie and I hope everyone had a wonderful Canada Day weekend. Find more on his facebook page.

“Saturday 30th June, 4-9pm at Station Square

A live interactive painting event at Station Square!

Over the years almost 40 dumpster and recycling bins have been transformed into works of art. At this live painting weekend, artists will prep dumpsters and start painting on the evenings of Thursday and Friday, with pop-up DJs building the atmosphere. The main event is on Saturday from 4-9pm with a beer tent, DJs, kids crafts, and chance for all to join in painting the community Dumpster.

Come out to watch artist’s visions come to life and vote for your favorite – there’s a $500 people’s choice award up for grabs for the winning design.

This year the Dumpster painting will be an evening event with DJs, a beer garden and kids’ Dumpster Trail activity.

Come by between 4 and 9pm to see the dumpsters painted live and contribute to the community dumpster.
