Fernie readies to celebrate Canada’s 155th

Canada Day has always been a popular day for Fernie to gather and celebrate friendship, fun and community. In recognition of our location within the Ktunaxa Amakis, the day will begin with a flag raising ceremony at Fernie City Hall followed by a Reconciliation Walk to the celebration grounds around the Fernie Aquatic Centre.
