Did you see the fireworks in Fernie? We didn’t! I was reading a book in my nice warm, dry, cozy bed. But now that I see Todd Weselake’s photos of the big event I wish….No. No. I don’t. I was happy in my bed. But these are some very cool pics of Fernie and I hope everyone had a wonderful Canada Day weekend. Find more on his facebook page.

We had a such a fun weekend in Fernie, I forgot to post on Small Town Social! That’s what happens when the sun comes out and the kids want to be outside from morning to night.
This next weekend is going to fly by just as quickly. Griz Days are upon us.
I’m not going to list all the events going on in Fernie next weekend because there is this really informative website called ferniegrizdays.com which will making your planning a breeze.
Highlights for us: Dummy Downhill, Craft Fair and the Parade. We will try and watch the fireworks and maybe participate in the scavenger hunt but the rest will be bonus if we see or participate in them. Time flies when you’re having fun.
The Canada Day festival is no longer at Prentice Park. That’s kind of important information and I would bet 25 cents that someone will show up to Prentice Park looking for a piece of Canada Day cake and will be so sad to find an empty field.
Go to the Aquatic Centre! 250 Pine Ave.
If you’re planning on driving anywhere this weekend, consider taking alternate routes or timing your trip with Thunder In The Valley in mind (unless you’re attending the popular Blairemore Alberta event). It’s gonna get crazy on Highway 3; about 10,000 people (rumoured) attend this event and there’s only one highway.
Thunder In The Valley fireworks commence at 11 pm – but we’re also in the middle of Rum Runner Days, a celebration of roots and culture in the Crowsnest Pass, from July 15th to 18th. Something to think aboot.
