Griz Kidz celebrate summer

The biannual Griz Kidz carnival at Fernie Alpine Resort had children playing games and enjoying activities offered on July 25.

The biannual Griz Kidz carnival at Fernie Alpine Resort had local children playing games and enjoying activities offered at the ski hill on Saturday, July 25.

Face painting, a bouncy castle, fishing and throwing games as well as balloon animals were offered to younger children while newer “jumbo games” were added into the mix to appeal to an older crowd.

“We’ve been doing these carnivals twice a year now for five years and this year we wanted to add games that would cater to an older crowd of kids in the 10-12-years-old range, just because a lot of our other activities are for children much younger than that,” said events coordinator Jeni Pearson.

While rain threatened to shower out the carnival earlier that day and winds persisted into the afternoon, the weather mostly held out for all attendees to enjoy the carnival.

“The weather isn’t perfectly ideal, but we’re so glad that so many kids have come out to enjoy the carnival and things are goind great,” said
