“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.

Griz Days 2015 Fernie Winter Festival parade - The Griz, Mayor Mary

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.

New Running Challenge – The Lone Wolf

The Lone Wolf - Running Challenge by The Stag Leap

The Lone Wolf is a new trail running challenge in Fernie, BC. A simple, fun, looped race. But there’s a catch. Racers start together on the hour as a pack, needing to finish the loop within the hour. As when the next hour strikes, the race starts again, in the opposite direction. The goal? To complete as many loops as you can.

The course will be a beautiful, manageable, single track loop, with moderate elevation gain. Around the 7km mark, it will be easy enough to complete within the cutoff time for most, however pacing and tactics will come into play as the day goes on.

The loop will be washing-machine style – heading clockwise, then counterclockwise, then clockwise and so on. Racers need to make it back to base before the hour cutoff, and be ready to start the loop again, on the hour. If you miss the cutoff, you’re out and you remain in the den.

Registration opening December 1st, 10AM: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=52780″
