Spring Fling says keep April 27 open

Annual downtown party set to launch a little later this month

All ages are all in for Spring Fling

It’s time to make sure the seasonal changeover goes smoothly… you may be about to change your snow tires or try to remember how to start your lawnmower.

You’re ready for Castlegar’s Spring Fling 2013, or you will be by Saturday, April 27.

You never forget how to twirl in front of a stage at Kinsmen Park to a sampling of the area’s top musicians.

You love and admire classic cars and the same goes for 3-on-3 hockey, and you appreciate three blocks of 3rd Street being blocked off to make for a totally worthwhile pedestrian-focused event.

Spring Fling is the time to make sure every last trace of winter (excepting maybe a residual dusting on local mountain tops) has been rinsed from the local landscape.

Great times are ahead and Spring Fling proves it.

This is the time for celebration… to hang out with friends, and neighbours in a fun and relaxed environment… and that’s all there is to it!



Here’s a rundown of the entertainment lined up
