JulyFest rockin’ July 20-22Posted: July 14, 2012

JulyFest is set to return July 20-22 and like in previous years, it will be one of Kimberley’s biggest events of the year.

Julyfest features a vast array of fun and entertaining events and activities, including the 40th annual Julyfest Homecoming Parade and the Canadian Bocce Championships.

A wide range of sports tournaments will also make Kimberley a lively place that weekend as there is a soccer tournament, the Triples on the Grass Volley Ball Tournament and a tennis festival.

On Saturday, July 21 there is the JulyFest 5K & 10K Run, which begins at 7:30 a.m. at the nature park and there will also be the sixth Annual Sullivan Challenge Extreme Stand-up Skateboard Race.

Don’t forget the Saturday Night Party at the Arena, too!

The Julyfest Homecoming Parade begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

JulyFest organizers are asking for residents to come forward and volunteer.

“JulyFest is Your Party Kimberley! We need you to make it happen. We still need bocce referees and beverage servers – especially for Saturday night in the Arena. Not too late to get your organization involved to raise funds for your programs! In addition we have some important paid-positions still available. Interested? Can you Lend a hand? Call Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce at 250-427-3666 today,” stated chamber executive director Sioban Staplin on the ImagineKimberley Facebook page.
