Let’s Celebrate the Columbia Valley![lead]The Columbia Valley is a special place, an amazing area to live, work, and visit and it’s time we Celebrated that! In the spirit of Canada’s 150th, the Greenways Trail Alliance, Kicking Horse Coffee, and Arrowhead Brewery are hosting Celebrate (a summer festival), a community oriented afternoon of fun, games, music and food designed to bring us all a little closer. Celebrate will be a fundraising event supporting the Westside Legacy Trail.[/lead]
Celebrate is full of fun – one of the activities will be a hilariously rowdy tournament of bumper ball, with teams of seven jumping into large inflatable balls and competing in a fast-paced game of soccer. Contact is encouraged – as players attempt to kick the ball between the posts, oncoming opponents are organizing themselves to bump them off course! Corporate teams will kick off the event in a series of matches with free-for-all unstructured play for all ages happening after.
We’ll have a dunk tank set up, with well-known dunkees lined up throughout the day. Ever wanted to get your boss, your teacher, your favourite politician – or even your spouse – soaking wet – here’s your chance. We’ll be accepting all nominees, and in this case peer pressure is probably the best option – and it’s for a good cause!
The Duelling Pianos will be back taking requests for your favourite songs throughout the day. Our two premium sponsors, Kicking Horse Coffee and Arrowhead Brewery will be serving up their beverages – with a surprise twist you wont want to miss! Food is a feature for Celebrate, and we’re upgrading the from the usual fare – enjoy our festival-style take on healthy delicious food, prepared and sourced from local chefs – here’s a taste the Valley that’s sure to impress!
We’ve loaded the whole event with many free activities such as Giant Jenga, World’s Slowest Bike Race, Tipsy Waiter, Lawn Twister, and more. These events are open throughout the event, and are perfect for some outside fun with your friends and community – You can sit and watch, or jump in and play!
Proceeds for this year’s event benefit the Westside Legacy Trail, with future years set to help fund sustainable trail development throughout the Valley.[/panel] [/row]
