Wining and Dining in Sparwood
Children have always been the focus of the Coal Miner Days celebration. Although families are encouraged to come out to events and support the community, activities like face painting, laser tag and the soap box derby cater solely to Sparwood's youth.
But the Chamber of Commerce’s annual Adult Social is an event that is meant for the grown-ups of the community.
“We thought it would be nice to have an adult only event,” Chamber of Commerce Manager Norma McDougall said.
This year, around 50 patrons came out on Friday to enjoy wine, cheese and meats all donated by businesses in the community, including Overwaitea Foods and Loaf Bakery, McDougall said.
“We had wonderful support from the business community.”
Despite a lower turn out from last year’s adult social, McDougall said the event was still a success.
“We had a good mix of people.”
