Canada Day In Fernie Without Fireworks

That’s only a few days away! How did that happen?! School’s almost out, my strawberries are turning red, Fernie is looking lush…so of course it’s almost Canada Day.

Here’s the festival Facebook page with a Farmer’s market and everything. What it doesn’t tell you is that Naena Robinson is playing at 4:30. Not to be missed.

This is what it says, though:

“Get ready for some serious Canada Day fun in Fernie, BC. This is one of the biggest farmers market events of the year.

The City of Fernie is excited to once again be hosting the Canada Day celebration from 12pm-9pm on July 1!

The event will be held on the Fernie Aquatic Centre grounds and include a full lineup of live music, children’s activities, the Mountain Market, free swimming, beer gardens and much more.

The Mountain Market will runs from noon to 5pm.

The City of Fernie would also like to let the community know that due to the recurring high seasonal fire risk, we have decided not to include a fireworks display at the 2019 Canada Day festivities.

In lieu of actual fireworks, I’ll leave you with this:

Outdoor Ice Rink For Fernie Planned

Fernie Outdoor Ice Rink by Fernie Aquatic Centre

From The Drive FM Website:

After last month’s arena tragedy has left the community without a place to skate, Fernie will build an outdoor rink.

Memorial Arena remains closed as RCMP investigate the suspected ammonia leak that killed three men October 17th.

A group of volunteers have come forward to help with the construction of the ice pad beside the Aquatic Centre. Read more here.
