Wine and cheese and food and wait…more wine! It’s the 3rd annual “WineSpring” event at the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino near Cranbrook, and it looks like the best way to start the season with style. For this event, the resort has partnered with wineries, distillers and chefs to create a full weekend event to get you in the mode to celebrate the change of the season.
Cranbrook, B.C. is ramping up the wow factor on Family Day Weekend with the new CBK-X Winter Blitzville. Not only is it a great basecamp for the long weekend to cram in your favourite winter sports like skiing and boarding, but now the city is offering an evening of spectacular demonstrations of athleticism, horsepower, and fireworks. And when we say fireworks – we mean Ka-BOOM!
Take a few very talented freestyle smowmobilers, some X-Games medalists, add just enough wild snowboarders to amaze the crowds. Then add a few rock bands, some food trucks and a dump truck load of pyrotechnics to complete the event and you got yourself the CBK-X Winter Blitzville Festival. Ka-Boom! Family Day Weekend in Cranbrook just got a wake-up call!
