Smokehouse just opened June 1st and it will continue to do so 5pm to 10pm daily. Check out their website for their menu and here’s a little bit about them from their website:
“Established local chefs Keith Ilavsky and James McDonald are launching Fernie’s latest restaurant and a menu of mouth-watering new dishes. Located at the Red Tree Lodge, just off the highway, Smokehouse specialises in Cajun-inspired slow-cooked smoked dishes, there are options for carnivores and vegetarians alike.”
Tomorrow’s the big day! It’s finally arrived…and I won’t even be here to enjoy it.

The Arts Station will be participating in this year’s Community Yard Sale. We will be selling old canvases, costumes, fabrics and whatever else we find in our basement! If you have any creative projects coming up, this could be your chance to pick up what you need to get the ball rolling. All proceeds to the Arts Station.
Wildsight Elk Valley will also host a “White Elephant” yard sale at their office at 891 Second Avenue in Fernie, where citizens who are inspired to declutter but don’t have the time to sell their goods can donate them to the Wildsight Elk Valley branch Yard Sale.

Fernie’s Community Appreciation Day is July 8th.
Also, who’s excited for the kid’s zipline park to open? We are!
That is all.
