You’ll feel like a super Canadian throughout the Fort St. James Winterfest, with quintessential events like the fast-paced and unique dog sledding race, ice-skating, a winter film fest, an outdoor art show, and curling championships.
Once that crisp air creeps into October, the city of Vernon warms up to autumn in a big way. The month-long celebration fills up the calendar with a pumpkin festival, corn mazes, spooky Halloween fun and a chance to watch the salmon spawn from the seat of a canoe.
We all know when something is done right. You have that sense of contentment, and, in some cases, a feeling that you were a part of something pretty magical. Such is the case with the now five-year running Five Acre Shaker, a music festival with the best intentions as described by writer and photographer Chris Istace, the Mindful Explorer. His life’s work is curating and connecting with communities to tell their stories and help elevate your festival and travel experiences.
It’s already shaping up to be a summer of festival fun. Picture yourself whooping it up at a stampede, trying out your first triathlon (or cheering on your sporty friends from the sidelines), or listening to some amazing young musicians playing classical music surrounded by the ocean on B.C.’s beautiful Sunshine Coast.
Whether you’re a seasoned triathlete, weekend warrior or someone looking to add a challenging event to your bucket list, the Wasa Lake Triathlon on June 8 & 9th features a series of events that will test your spirit and reward you immeasurably at the finish line.
