Nordic Centre hosting Halloween Event

This year for the first time, the Fernie Nordic Society is holding a Great Pumpkin Hunt.

This year for the first time, the Fernie Nordic Society is holding a Great Pumpkin Hunt.

This Saturday, children nine years of age and younger are invited to scour the forests that surround the Warming Hut at the Elk Valley Nordic Centre for their own pumpkin. You don’t need to be a Fernie Nordic Society member to join in on the fun.

When the search is complete, children can decorate their pumpkins inside the hut, and then they can enjoy hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows by the bonfires.

It promises to be a great morning of autumn fun.

Prizes will be awarded to the best, most creative and wackiest decorated pumpkin.

A minimum donation of $5 per pumpkin hunter is requested and includes decorating, hot chocolate, and marshmallows.

The event is outdoors, so dress your children appropriately for the weather and bring camping chairs or blankets if desired.

Bring your own hotdogs to roast on the bonfires and enjoy a walk on the trails around the Warming Hut after the hunt.


The day will go ahead as scheduled unless the weather is bad, in which case it will be postponed until Oct. 31. Check the Fernie Nordic Society Facebook page for updates.
