Organizers with the sixth annual Spring Fling are calling last Saturday’s event a success, with residents from all over the West Kootenay coming to attend the festivities.

“I think it went well,” Peter Laurie, one of the organizers said. “We had pretty good weather, so that was nice.”

Laurie said having a variety of vendors, lots of good food and a full 3-on-3 hockey tournament made the event fun for all.

“We had full rinks,” he said. “We couldn’t accept any more teams.”

Street hockey players came from Trail, Nelson and the Slocan Valley to play.

“We had adults playing and kids probably as young as eight and nine,” Laurie said.

Once things settle down, Laurie said the committee will begin plans for next year.

“Every year we anticipate to continue on and do it again,” he said. “To do these kinds of things it does take quite a few people, so it’s all good when people come out because it’s just volunteers trying to make an event happen.”

Overall, Laurie said this year’s event was “great.”

“We had a good time and people seemed to enjoy it,” he said. “That’s what it’s all about, right?”
