Fernie will be famous again

Downtown Fernie will serve as the backdrop for the 2013 Eddie Bauer holiday catalogue. The outdoor clothing company is holding a photo shoot on Second Avenue next week.

Second Avenue, between Fourth and Sixth Street, will be closed to vehicles Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings between 4 and 11 a.m.

“They are restricting vehicle traffic, parking, and driving through, but not pedestrian traffic,” explained Cam Mertz, Director of Leisure Services for the City of Fernie. “The producer will be meeting with businesses along Second Avenue, going through to make sure that there are no issues with the local businesses.”

The photo shoot is scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, however a third day was added in case of bad weather. The Eddie Bauer crew will be in Fernie for roughly one week shooting downtown, as well as at a location in Hosmer.
