C’gar du so-lay!

Less than a month until Sunfest fun takes over Castlegar

Sunfest means parades (2012 event pictured) and much... much more.

The headline may be grammatically appalling, but it’s hard to dispute when you think about what’s coming up with Castlegar’s Sunfest this year.

Every town, city, village and hamlet likes to say so, but here in Castlegar (and outlying areas), not only do we really know how to party, but we know WHEN!

The Spring Fling has got the party reflex twitching and Sunfest is about to give it free rein.

Like the Fling, the Fest is Best…for the whole family!

Live rock at it’s finest in Kinsmen Park… a la BC/DC!

The crowning of Miss Castlegar at SHSS… and all the related hoopla.

There’s plenty of other tried and true attractions to make the most of… who doesn’t love an outdoor pancake breakfast heaped on by local Rotarians? How about beautiful antique cars and sporting component furnished by slo-pitch and roller derby. Oh… did someone say… parade?

Get involved in this year’s Sunfest. Festivities will begin with the naming of the Citizen of the Year, June 4 at St. Rita’s Parish Hall then kick into high gear June 6 – 8, look for a schedule of events at www.castlegarsunfest.ca/

Then start making plans for the Kootenay Festival, July 26 on Heritage Way, across from the airport.
