One of the best JulyFests yetPosted: July 24, 2012
The micro-burst powered winds that slammed Cranbrook done for the weekend of July 20-22 impacted Kimberley’s annual JulyFest celebrations, forcing a Friday night closure of the bocce tournament, with a record number of entries (210), but it wasn’t enough to stop the event from being one of the best yet.
Kimberley Chamber of Commerce executive director Sioban Staplin stated on the ImagineKimberley Facebook page that she believes the weekend of fun and games was one of the best yet staged.
“Words cannot express how truly grateful we are for all the fine people we had step up to make this one of the best fests ever! Mother Nature put us to the test and we came out triumphant! From our amazing Bocce Pit Crew to the City of Kimberley staff who worked double time to connect the arena to generators to power our Saturday Night Dance Party, to the groups and individual volunteers who gave their time, energy and enthusiasm – We salute you,” Staplin stated.
Following a somewhat chaotic Friday night, the weather settled down for more normal and suitable conditions for Kimberley’s annual big party, with glorious, bright sunshine greeting the parade and the rest of the events held on Saturday and Sunday.
