Big weekend ahead for InvermerePosted: July 18, 2012
This upcoming weekend (July 20/21) is one of the busiest of the year in Invermere.
The fun kicks off Friday evening (July 20) when Bull Riding in the Rockies returns.
This annual event features a cowboy dinner, auction, bull riding and a dance on the corner of 13th and 4th Avenue. Call 250-342-6908 or visit www.columbiavalleysummerlude.com for more information.
Saturday, July 21 promises to be a rollicking day as Valley Appreciation Day (VAD) returns for another year.
The downtown event begins in the morning with a service club pancake breakfast followed by a vast array of vendors and information booths, games, live entertainment and more.
The breakfast begins at 9 a.m. and VAD runs until 1 p.m.
The regatta features races showcasing skills at sailing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking. A note to sailors: You must pre-register and bring your own boat the day of the event.
In addition, there are other competitions such as a beach volleyball tournament and a sand art contest.
There is a ‘Love Your Lake’ photo contest (submit your photos today) and Lake Smarts: test your knowledge about Lake Windermere at the Lake Windermere Ambassadors’ Lake Smart tent.
Prizes will be awarded for all events, and enter to win a grand prize!
All activities are free, and everyone is encouraged to join in!
