Saturday, October 20th the 4th Annual Great Pumpkin Hunt is happening at Fernie Nordic Society Centre (warming hut) by the Provincial Park. This is intended for kids aged 9 and under. There will be hot chocolate, fires for warmth and PUMPKINS to hunt. I’d suggest you and your family get there early as it’s a popular event and pumpkins go fast.
11:30-1:30pm. Dress warm!

We had a such a fun weekend in Fernie, I forgot to post on Small Town Social! That’s what happens when the sun comes out and the kids want to be outside from morning to night.
This next weekend is going to fly by just as quickly. Griz Days are upon us.
I’m not going to list all the events going on in Fernie next weekend because there is this really informative website called ferniegrizdays.com which will making your planning a breeze.
Highlights for us: Dummy Downhill, Craft Fair and the Parade. We will try and watch the fireworks and maybe participate in the scavenger hunt but the rest will be bonus if we see or participate in them. Time flies when you’re having fun.
