Fernie Pumpkin Hunt sells out

Huge turnout to annual fall fundraiser for Fernie Nordic Society

The Fernie Nordic Society hosted the fourth annual Pumpkin Hunt last Saturday.

The event attracted hundreds of people with all 350 pumpkins sold.

They went for $10 apiece with all proceeds going back to the Nordic Society, a non-profit organization that offers cross-country skiing development programs and events in Fernie.
