The Castlegar Spring Fling is only a few weeks away. The event will be held May 2 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Registration deadlines for vendors and road hockey are fast approaching.

April 28 is the last day to register your team for the three-on-three road hockey tournament.

There will be three divisions this year: nine and under, 10-13 and 14-plus (adult). Rona and Mitchell Supply have provided the supplies to build the four wood rinks to be set up on 3rd St. between Pharmasave and Kinsmen Park.

Cash, prizes and trophies will be awarded. For information on registering, see the Castlegar Spring Fling Facebook page.

Spring Fling is a family-oriented event and will include games for kids from noon to 3 p.m. at the park. Fire trucks and ambulances as well as search and rescue vehicles will be on hand to accompany the collection of classic cars and trucks.

Organizer Peter Laurie said “Spring Fling is a true grassroots community event with volunteers, vendors, local businesses and performers coming together to make this fun day possible.

“We welcome participants for the hockey tournament and classic car show and still have spots for vendors as well. If you haven’t attended before, please join us this year.”

A new event for this year is the Little Red Wagon Race. Open to all ages, and all colours of little wagons, prizes will be awarded for the fastest wagon and for the best decorated. Bring your own wagon and helmet.

There is a full line up of local music and entertainment scheduled for the stage at the park. Performers include Spiritwood, Danikka Soukeroff, Christina Amelio, The Burn Ins, Connor James, Supercats and Hillbilly Trucker. Additional entertainment will continue into the evening at the Castlegar Public Library amphitheatre.

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.

Sponsors for this year’s event include the City of Castlegar, Kootenay Savings Credit Union and GOAT FM.
