The weekly Sunday Social brought sport-lovers out onto Fernie’s 2nd Avenue to enjoy the social’s athletic theme.

Sports Day activities abounded with a beanbag toss, street hockey station, and mini golf lined up for people to try.

Even the Elk Valley RFC Bulls were in attendance, with captain Peter Dudman teaching passers-by how to properly throw a rugby ball at a target.

Sunday Social requisites present every week included giant checkers and chess as well as a bouncy castle, a barbecue put on by the rugby club, a costume photobooth and live street music.

The social calendar will continue this summer with a Fernie’s Got Fashion show.
