Fernie on Fire, 2018

Fernie on Fire will take place on January 6 at the Fernie Aquatic Centre, starting at 5:30 p.m.

This year’s Fernie On Fire event is scheduled to light up the night on January 6 at the Fernie Aquatic Centre, starting at 5:30 p.m.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the Fernie Outdoor Rink. Shortfall totals approximately $25,000, and the City of Fernie is hoping to raise a substantial amount this year.

Locals are encouraged to drop their Christmas trees off at the Fernie City Works Yard, one week prior during regular business hours.

A tree curbside pickup program is in place for the morning of January 6. Trees must be outside for 8 a.m.

On the night of Fernie On Fire, there will be raffle prizes, music, BBQ, hot beverages and adult beverages.
