VAD remains hugely popularPosted: July 26, 2012
Valley Appreciation Day (VAD) in Invermere (July 21) was another smash success as several thousand people made their way along main street and 13th Avenue taking in the combined Farmers’ Market and VAD sights, sounds and smells.
The always-popular pancake breakfast, served up by the valley’s service clubs, fueled families for the fun to come. The fun included go-kart races, live entertainment, the Gagne’s Logging Show and more, including a carnival-like atmosphere of food, crafts, produce, flowers, information and art booths, stretching for a couple of ‘Invermere blocks.’
Despite the closure of the Trans-Canada Highway at Banff the evening before, from a mudslide, and a powerful micro-burst packing storm that seems to have spent the bulk of its energy of Cranbrook 140 kms away, the crowd at VAD seemed about as large as ever – proving you can’t keep a good community party down for long.
Once again, the weather cooperated wonderfully, with bright sunshine the order of the morning.
