I went back at least 8 years and collected a few beauty shots from our days in Fernie. This truly is a magical place, in all seasons. Happy Earth Day!

Want to submit a piece to the Trashy But Flashy Fashion Show (Earth Day in Fernie) and have no idea where to get started? You can attend a free workshop (bring your own supplies) to get inspiration, help and/or advice from previous contestants.
Sunday, April 3rd, from 2 to 5 pm at The Arts Station
Last year one of the contestants created a piece just minutes before the lights went down and they won a prize – I can just imagine what it could have been if there had been some sort of planning involved. My imagination runs wild.
I decided a few weeks ago that I would help out with the Flashy But Trashy Fashion Show, mostly, because I like getting involved in the community when I can. Earth Day, to me, is not something I regularly prepare for or choose to celebrate. But what I really wanted to do is find out what the Flashy But Trashy Show is and who’s involved in it and why – and then do my best to help them out with their cause – that’s important to me and makes me happy.
So this is what I discovered: the small group of people who put together the Earth Day events at the Community Centre do it entirely for the community and environment. It’s a genuinely fun, family friendly event that encourages and supports creativity, love and ideas. Because not everyone shares their passion for the causes they promote and discuss, only a small group of people were able to see how wonderfully a group of people can come together and put on such a fantastic event without any desire for monetary success or thanks. Oddly enough, all the displays about eco-friendly products, programs and services were exposed to people who probably already know about or participate in those programs. But, I digress, to see individuals contribute what they can by helping to build the stage, set up the lights, place the tables and chairs, sweep the floor, eat the snacks, plan the itinerary, organize the models – and then take everything down at the end of the night. It was amazing. It’s amazing what a small group of people can do. That’s what I learned on Thursday, April 22nd.
