Lending a hand part of an amazing race

At this very moment there is an amazing race happening in Fernie bringing out the spidey senses in the young sleuths.

An amazing race

At this very moment there is an amazing race happening in Fernie. A new idea for a birthday party had kids going from location to location in the style of the “Amazing Race”.

Kids showed up for Aurora Wannamaker’s tenth birthday party to find themselves heading out to mystery locations in Fernie. The kids were given a list of clues they must decipher to discover their next destination. At each location they must complete a task before moving on to the next place. So far they have lent a helping hand the library organizing, sorting and re-shelving books before finding themselves riding a lap at the dirt jump park. Aurora’s older sister and friends were onsite to help the sleuths solve the clues and assure they arrived safely by bikes to their next location.

If you see five or six groups of very focused children biking, it is because they are on a mission. With prizes awaiting them at the finish line, you can bet they are honing their spidey senses and dusting off any summer cobwebs just in time for school next week.

Sources say they may be going to the post office, the new dog park area (or Barkside) and the duck pond next.
