Griz Kidz Summer Carnival at Fernie Alpine Resort

As cute as a button, Jasmine was proud as punch as she pinned on the button she made at the craft tent.

Proud as Punch!

Kids brought their parents to Fernie Alpine Resort for the second annual Griz Kidz Summer Carnival today.

Activities in the main plaza included the bouncy tent
, arts and crafts station where they could make their very own badges
, carnival games
 and balloon animals. Fancy face painting meant fire breathing dragons were helping younger dragonflies cast for water creatures in the fishing pool while young skeletons roamed the plaza.

Kids and families were also invited to take part in the “Family Fossil Adventure with Nature Bob”. After meeting Nature Bob in the plaza for an educational talk about fossils in the area, people followed him up the lift for a short-guided hike to discover some of the hidden fossils around the mountain for themselves.
