Locals hit the streets on Sunday for the fourth Sunday Summer Social of the season.

And this weekend, the Chamber of Commerce welcomed Fernie’s four-legged friends as they celebrated the first annual Dog Days of Summer.

“I think it went well,” Corein Sieders with the Fernie Chamber of Commerce said.

Fernie Puppy School hosted a dog show and locals watched as the dogs showed off their amazing agility and tricks.

But the scheduled dog parade was cancelled due to a low turn out, Sieders said.

“It’s too warm for the dogs on the asphalt,” she said. “Next year we can do a little bit better and hopefully more dogs will show up. For me, this one was not successful enough”

Sieders said she hopes to schedule the event at a different time next year to avoid the heat.

As for the furry friends that did make it out to the Dog Days of Summer celebration, they happily roamed Second Ave., many of them making friends along the way.
