If you and your family are looking for something to do this week, the City has just the thing for you.
The City of Fort St. John is holding their annual Family Fun in the Sun week, and this year looks to be one of their biggest yet.
Starting on August 17th and running through to the 21st, families will have the opportunity to take part in events such as an outdoor movie, a bike rodeo and motorcycle show and shine, an RCMP garage sale, a teddy bear picnic, and more.
Kicking it off tomorrow will be Teen Night at the pool for teens aged 12-16. It will run from 7-10pm and entry is just 5 dollars.
Thursday is a busy day with two events happening. Families are invited to come out to the ‘Play in the Park’ event happening from 11am-1pm in Centennial Park, and then to the Family Scavenger Hunt from 7-8pm happening at the Tourist information center. Both of those events are free.
Friday is another full day with a Tween swim happening from 1pm to 3pm at the North Peace Leisure pool, with admission being just 5 dollars. That night, the City is then hosting a ‘Movie in the Park’ night, with two outdoor movies happening back to back in Centennial Park. The City will provide two surprise movies, along with free popcorn and cotton candy, if you provide your own blankets and chairs.
On Saturday the RCMP will join in on the fun and will hold a bike rodeo and motorcycle show and shine from 11am to 1pm in the North Peace Leisure Pool parking lot. The event is free, and if you would like to be a part of the event, all you have to do is show up sometime around 11am.
The activities then role into the afternoon with the Family Passport Challenge happening from 1pm to 4pm in Centennial park, where, as organizer Kayla Bruintjes explains, families will be faced with all sorts of challenges.
