Coal Miner Days will have a new event this year!

The annual festival in Sparwood will have a touch of the Highland Games, with a Tug of War competition.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 8 at 4 p.m. and organizers are hoping lots of teams will sign up in advance.

“Businesses can challenge other businesses for bragging rights,” said organizer Renee MacCormack. “Individuals, teams or families can challenge others. I would encourage business teams to wear company shirts. I think this is a great opportunity for your business to get out there and show your support for Coal Miner Days and a chance to be actively involved in a community event.”

The Sparwood Fire Department is providing a rope for the competition, which will be held at the beach volleyball courts. There will be five categories to enter: male, female, teen, pre-teen and child. Cash prizes are up for grabs. If you have any questions, contact Renee at 250-425-0021.
