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.

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.
