A very Social Wednesday social

The last of the Wednesday Socials in Fernie was a big hit with locals.

The summer socials initiative ended on one of the last of the warm summer nights on Wednesday last week, with Big Bubba Tres opening and getting young and old dancing.

A beer tent kept people refreshed and everyone agreed it was the perfect ending to a successful initiative by the Fernie Chamber of Commerce.

The event ran all summer on Sundays and Wednesdays from July 3 until September 4.

Sarah Parry from Fernie Chamber of Commerce, said: “For a little invested effort I believe that we can grow the idea of Fernie being a great summer destination as well as a winter one.”

Sunday’s socials complimented the already popular Mountain Market, held every Sunday in Fernie throughout summer and in its tenth year of operation.

Wednesday’s socials included the Mountain Market’s new addition of a mid-week market in Fernie’s Station Square as well as live entertainment, music and refreshments provided by the Fernie Brewing Company.
