Mountain Mosaic Festival of the Arts returnsPosted: June 25, 2012
In less than two weeks the streets of Invermere will be filled with floats and the skies will be alive with explosions of celebratory light displays as the Mountain Mosaic Festival of the Arts kicks off.
The free family event takes place alongside the District of Invermere’s Canada Day celebrations, and will pick up right after the parade down Main Street on July 1. The parade, which is organized by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 71, begins at 11 a.m. and the festivities begin down at Kinsmen Beach at noon.
The night before, June 30, at midnight, the skies will be the palette for a fantastic fireworks display put on by the Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley. To get a good vantage point for the fireworks, make your way down to the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena, and look up. It just might be a night you won’t soon forget.
Then, after the parade on July 1, make sure you head down to Kinsmen Beach where the Columbia Valley Arts Council has a myriad of activities, events and entertainment for the whole family.
The Home Hardware sponsored entertainment stage will be featuring performances by Desiderata Dance Studio, Paulo, the Invermere Irish Dancers, Norma Macdonald and Steven Bowers and Lulu the Clown. Activities and kiosks throughout the grounds will include the Transformation Station, a Black Star Studios sponsored Mosaic Station, the Purcell Mountain Painters, Groundswell Garden, Bubbles and Hula Hoops, Rock Painting, the Panorama Bounce Castle and the ever-popular Cops for Kids Boat Building Contest and Race.
“We anticipate large crowds again at this year’s Mountain Mosaic Festival,” Kim Turgeon, event organizer, said. “The event is gaining in popularity year after year. We are committed to offering free entertainment for the whole family as they enjoy the Canada Day long weekend. So come on out and, rain or shine, and celebrate Canada Day with us.”
Funding partners for the Mountain Mosaic Festival of the Arts include the Columbia Basin Trust, Bob and Barb Shaunessy, Panorama Mountain Village, and CV Arts.
