With Griz Days barely a month away registration for various events during the festival is now open.
“We want everyone to have an opportunity to participate in all our activities so we’ve made registrations easier and faster on our website this year,” said Lori Bradish, Griz Days coordinator.
For those wanting to participate in events like the Light Up the Night Parade, the Extreme Griz Competition and the Main Street Bed Races there are simple online registrations. Ticketed events like this year’s Hot Dog Pub Crawl can also be purchased through the Griz Days website, www.ferniegrizdays.com.
For those not using computer registrations there is another option. “We also wanted to provide other options for people, so you can also register and buy tickets for any event at the Fernie Chamber office, which is open daily,” Bradish said.
However, one of the best things about the yearly winter festival is that most activities are free.
“As a spectator you can literally spend the weekend taking in a whole range of activities for free. You can ski with Griz or take in a Fernie Library event on Friday, you can watch the Extreme Griz competitors vie for the crown, watch snow rugby, play snow golf, watch snowmobile drags, participate in the Junior Griz Training Ground, try out smoosh skiing, listen to live music and theatre, watch the parade and see a fireworks show on Saturday and then take in the Dummy Downhill and other entertainment at FAR on Sunday,” Bradish said.
