A 'cursed' scavenger hunt

The final event in the 50th Anniversary of the Curse Raising Ceremonies saw participants scatter across Fernie taking part in the “Cursed” Scavenger Hunt on Sunday afternoon.

With clues hidden around the city and inside the Fernie Museum — who hosted the event — it was a fun way of getting everyone in the town involved in the celebration of the curse lifting and on the history of the town.

Approximately 50 participants were questioned on various curse and town-related subjects, such as the ramifications of the curse, what Aboriginal group performed the lifting of the curse and the names of people captured in photos that hang in the museum.

Prizes were handed out to participants with the most correct answers.
