This year for the Griz Days Festival the students of the Fernie Academy (up to and including 11 year olds) will be creating a piece of artwork.  As Fernie Alpine Resort is celebrating ‘50 years’ of skiing and riding fun this will help the kids celebrate such a great milestone.

Griz Days usually draws large crowds, including families and young children and this year will be even bigger and better with the introduction of new activities and events.

All of the artwork will be on display during the Griz Festival at the Community Centre, on public view during the Craft Show on Saturday March 3rd from 10 am to 4 pm and then moved to the Downtown Museum where it will form part of the skiing celebration exhibit.   There will also be an opportunity at the Craft Fair for people to select their favourite and a prize will be awarded.
