Fall Festival adds fun flair to downtown
The inaugural Cranbrook Fall Festival and P.U.B. Stop was a lively, engaging and entertaining day in the Key City’s downtown Saturday, Sept. 23.
Staged by the City of Cranbrook, the event was held in Rotary Park and 1st Street South, as well as the Cranbrook Farmers’ Market on 10th Ave. S. The downtown was transformed into a festive street theatre.
With the support of the Columbia Basin Trust, the city brought in local, national and international buskers to entertain the large crowds of people who attended the daytime activities.
And then starting at 4 p.m. JCI Kootenay presented the city’s first Pop-up Beer (P.U.B) Stop in the heart of Rotary Park. Fernie Brewing, Fisher Peak Brewing, Overtime Beer Works and Arrowhead Brewing showed off their favourite brews to Cranbrook residents for an evening of showcasing and fine beer tasting.
Local acts Clayton and Joelle, Dawson Rutledge, and East Side West Side Connection performed at the Rotary Park gazebo.
