Over a hundred people showed up in their best 20s inspired costumes for the Arts and Letters Gatsby Gala on Saturday night at The Arts Station in Fernie.
“It was completely sold out,” said Emma Dressler, Fernie Heritage Library director.
“It was a phenomenal event. All our expectations were exceeded in every way.”
Dressler said that the Orient Express, the previous Arts and Letters event, set the bar very high.
“People were wondering how we would surpass it, and we did,” she said.
The event started at 6 p.m. and people were dancing at Picnic until 2:30 a.m.
“Everyone who walked in the door was immediately in a great mood,” said Dressler.
The funds raised by the event will be split between the Friends of the Fernie Heritage Library and The Arts Station to provide community and children’s programming.
