Castlegar Sculpturewalk will be wrapping up 2023 with a Night of Fire.

Sculpturewalk artists Spring Shine, Christopher Petersen and Yvonne Boyd will create a massive wooden sculpture which will go up in celebratory flames on Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Geronazzo Pit at Millennium Park (near the dog park parking lot).

The free, family-friendly event will kick off with the announcement of Sculpturewalk’s 2023 award winners.

Looking forward to 2024, Sculpturewalk has received grants for some new initiatives.

They will be adding a groundbreaking augmented reality feature to the program, set to debut when the new season opens on May 25. This grant is from the Tourism BC Destination Development Fund.

They will also be creating a five-year strategic plan, focusing on equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility and reconciliation from the Canada Community Services Recovery Fund via the Red Cross.

New stainless steel ballot boxes will be installed thanks to the BC Gaming Infrastructure Program.

Sculpturewalk is a non-profit organization. Their annual general meeting (AGM) will be held Thursday, Nov. 30 at 5 p.m. Sign up for an annual Sculpturewalk membership for $10 and they will send you the invitation link and materials. For more information contact info@castlegarsculpturewalk.com.
