This weekend was full of tons of exciting events all over Fort St John! We had beautiful days on Friday and Sunday and though Saturday gave us a little rain, that never stops anyone in Fort St John – We truly are the energetic city!
Friday night saw the Grand Opening of Museum Renovations as well as the Comedy Detour Show at the Lido in addition to all the garage sales around town. I also stopped in to visit the SPCA and made a new friend, Celine the cat.
Even though the weather was bleak, the spirits of everyone in Fort St John were high and there was still tons to do all around town! The curling rink hosted the Farmer’s Market, as well as the Cadet Ceremonial Review. The round robin portion of the FSJ Slo-Pitch Icebreaker tournament was underway, despite the pools of water all over the diamond! Saturday also saw the annual Bluey Day ‘Be Brave and Shave’ event in support of the FSJ Hospital Foundation. Over $92,000 was raised at the event, which will go towards the purchase of cancer treatment and diagnostic equipment for the Fort St John Hospital. The Heroes Mess Dinner for local emergency services and members of the armed forces was also held on Saturday evening.
On Sunday, it was another beautiful day. Perfect for a picnic at the park and a great day to spend some time outside. Everyone in the playoffs at the FSJ Slo-Pitch Icebreaker Tournament were thankful for the great weather. The first ‘Tapping Into Talent’ event was held at their new venue, the North Peace Senior Housing Society Apt 3, and showcased tons of amazing local talent. To cap off an fantastic weekend, the Doc Walker show was held at the Cultural Center in support of their new album, The 8th.
