Families can swim for free when Fernie and Sparwood host Family Day events on Monday, February 18.
The B.C. Government has provided funding to support free activities throughout the province on Family Day.
Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Lisa Beare, said Family Day gives families the opportunity to spend extra time together.
“I’d like to thank the organizers for their dedication and hard work in planning free community events,” she said.
“BC Family Day is a celebration of family life and a reminder of the importance of spending time with family.”
On Family Day, the Fernie Aquatic Centre will host a free Wibit obstacle course in the main pool from 12-3 p.m.
At the Sparwood pool, there will be music, floaties and pool toys from 1-4 p.m. on February 18 and 19.
Families will also receive a photo button to take home with them.
