Bibbity Bobbity Boo Today! What A Great Weekend In Fernie.

2015 Bibbity Bobbity Boo Fernie Children's Festival

Wapiti Music Festival Schedule Released

Wapiti Music Festival - Schedule - Fernie Music In The Park

The schedule is alive!
Now’s the time to make your own Wapiti schedule (mostly for those who have kids that still nap). Rod and I will be tag teaming here and there so the kids can get a break, eat properly, nap and we’ll be at the festival for the bands we don’t want to miss.
I also like to take a picture of the schedule and use it as my ‘lock screen’ for easy access. Brilliant.
Tonight, Hark Raving Sirens and The Steadies are playing at the The Arts Station for a free downtown concert. There’s so much to enjoy this weekend because on Sunday the Bibbity Boppity Boo Children’s Festival and market is at Rotary Park. A great time for all – especially if you like balloons and bubbles.

Out Of The Box Dumpster Art Day In Fernie

Dumpster Art - Out Of The Box - all artists

There were so many amazing artists working on dumpsters again this year. There was some really impressive work happening at Out Of The Box Dumpster Art Day. But there wasn’t just dumpster painting going on, the organizers had put together a few awesome free art projects for those who came down – trucker hat designs, button making, paint a square on the community dumpster or grab some spray paint and make some art on a canvas. It was like a really cool block party and I was so excited to be part of it. There is word that it will continue again next year. I hope so. I’m in!

Also, it’s important to note, all the dumpsters in my photos are in progress.  You should check out the final pieces around town! See if you can spot all 9 of them.
