The City of Fernie is busy getting ready for this year’s Canada Day events, which will feature many activities for children and their parents.

The day’s events will get started at noon at Prentice Park with a Pet and Bike Parade organized by Gear Hub.

Kids will be able to decorate their bike or pet to celebrate Canada Day and then they will all proceed around the track.

Gear Hub will also be organizing games and events for kids to participate in with their pets.

There will also be a kids’ tent hosted by the Fernie Child Care Society which will have face painting, crafts and games for kids.

The tent will also have a sand box for babies and Grow will be hosting the All Canadian Baby Races.

A new event for this year’s Canada Day events will be a petting zoo and ponies. Pony Rides will be offered from the Alpine Enthusiasts.

The Griz from the Fernie Chamber of Commerce, Truffles the bear from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and Buddy the Miner from Teck Coal will also be at the day’s events.

Sonia Roy and Kylie Rogers will also be entertaining families with their stilt walking and other performances.

Bouncy castles will also line the outside of the park.
