We caught the last 10 minutes of the Fernie Alpine Resort Griz Kidz Summer Carnival on Saturday. Apparently, it was the perfect time to show up because there were long line ups for face painting and I’m sure all the other games. We were the only ones there! I think I have the rain to thank for that. So, thanks, Rain, and the friendly people at the carnival.

The change in location for the Canada Day festival was a smart idea. At first I thought “What’s up with that?” because we all fear change…but the Fernie Aquatic Centre had much more going for it. There was the bike park, splash park, exercise machines and the pool. Besides all the permanent features the organizers brought in a lot more food vendors, a big craft market, a stage with live music, a dunk tank. For the little kids there was a covered craft area, sandbox, fishing pool, tattoos, face painting (Phoenix had her face painted for the first time ever because there was no line up for the first time ever), and I hear there was cake and watermelon, but I didn’t get there in time for that. A great day even though I was sure I was melting in the sun.
Rod disturbed Phoenix from her slumber so they could sit on our roof for the fireworks, which is becoming a bit of a tradition, but I was so tired from the busy, hot day that I went to bed a passed out immediately….after reading a couple pages from my book.
Get ready for some Fernie Fun! This will be a market not to be missed. All the action will be happening throughout Rotary Park from 10am-2pm on Sunday August 29th.
