‘Fort St. John loves Families’ offering promotions all next week

This weekend is the official start of Fort St. John loves families, a celebration with free events running from October 3rd to October 10th.

The week also coincides with Fire Prevention Week – with both events starting on the weekend, the Fort St. John Fire Department will be hosting a Fire Prevention Kickoff event at Home Hardware on Saturday.


Heather McBryan is coordinating the event this year, and will be at Home Hardware as well, handing out booklets with more information on the events.

She hopes it will be an annual event from now on – as it didn’t happen last year.

“It’s free or low cost, and there’s lots of great promotions and events throughout the week offered by local organizations and businesses, so that’s great.” she said.

Some of the promotions include:

  • A&W: Free ice cream cone with the purchase of a Kids Meal, all week long.
