Activities for kids are a big feature of Spring Fling. The bounce castle with slide was a favourite at the 2015 event.

Spring Fling April 30

Deadlines for vendor and road hockey registrations are approaching for this year's Spring Fling.

Spring is in the air and the organizers of Castlegar’s annual Spring Fling are busy preparing for the April 30 event. This year’s event will once again feature a three-on-three road hockey tournament, kids games, bounce house, car show, emergency vehicles, live entertainment and vendors booths in and around Kinsmen Park in downtown Castlegar.

“It’s a fun day for people to come out and kick off spring,” said organizer Peter Laurie of the family-oriented event.

The three-on-three road hockey tournament will consist of four brackets divided into ages six-11 , 12-15, 16-35 and over 35. Registration is $20 per team and along with bragging rights, this year’s winners will also receive prize money. If you would like to register, information is available on the Castlegar Spring Fling Facebook page or by calling Angela Jack at 250-365-0014.

Vendor registrations are due by April 10 and can be made by calling Peter Laurie at 250-365-5655.

The entertainment lineup is still developing, but several artists have already confirmed including Christina Amelio, Hillbilly Trucker, Supercats Studios and Danika Sookeroff.

Spring Fling is run by a committee that is still looking for volunteers to help on the day of the event. If you would like to volunteer, contact Peter Laurie at 250-365-5655.
