Local kids and their parents headed up to the Fernie Alpine Resort (FAR) on Saturday, March 14 for the annual Griz Kidz Winter Carnival.

Though some adjustments had to be made to bring the carnival inside due to a downpour, the most important people of the carnival didn’t seem to mind.

“The thing with kids is that they’re so resilient and they don’t really seem to care about that stuff. They’re still having a great time,” said FAR Events Coordinator Jeni Pearson.

Among the activities offered were face painting, balloon animals, carnival games, Twister and a crafts table. Sweet treats like carrot cake, popcorn and pizza were also available for the free event.

“It’s a really great opportunity for local families to come up to the resort,” said Pearson of the event. “It gives parents a chance to bring their kids up to the hill, show them the skis and they can learn about the resort and encourage them to take part in winter activities like skiing.”
