It is forecasted to be another scorcher in Terrace this weekend. We have the usual events and some new ones to add.
Saturday begins off with its usual start with the Skeena Valley Farmer’s Market, where we will have our NEW SHIRTS
for sale, and the Rosswood pancake breakfast and flea market.
At 9 AM, a group of local bikers will be getting ready to head out on a poker run to Smithers, where they will join in the 25th anniversary celebration for Harley Davidson Smithers. CLICK HERE
to read more about this event.
The Thornhill Volunteer Fire Department will be having an open house from 11 AM until 3 PM at their fire hall. There will be food & refreshments, fun for kids, & displays of firefighting equipment as well as a draw for a gardener package raffle. Go check it out.
The Skeena Diversity Society will be having their monthly movie & discussion night at the Skeena Diversity Centre on 4617 Lazelle Ave. This month’s movie is Twelve
by Lester Alfonso and starts at 7 PM. Alfonso, a Philippine-born filmmaker, seeks out twelve people who came to Canada at age 12 and, in listening to their stories, begins to understand himself. On the cusp of teenage hormones, 12-year-olds often experience emotions with more intensity. Adapting to a new country at this age can be overwhelming. Everyone is free to come.
To wrap up the events on Saturday, A.W.O.L. takes the stage at George’s in the Northern Motor Inn. Their performance begins at 9:30 PM and the cover charge is $5.
Sunday looks to be a slow, almost uneventful day. It begins just like every other Sunday with the George Little House flea market. Maybe you’ll get lucky and find some “buried” treasures there.
That night there is the final meeting of the Gospel Tent meetings. It’s under the big tent next to the old River Industries building. Come down and listen to the speakers.
Just a reminder to everybody that there is a full-out ban on any campfires, including the tiki- torches with a heavy fine if caught. The fine for having a fire lit is a $345 ticket, which is not just to the person who lit the fire, but also to each of the people sitting at the campsite. If you are the cause of a wildfire you can be given a heavy one million dollar fine or three years in jail and paying all firefighting costs. This seems to be a pretty heavy risk just to have a couple hotdogs and smores to me. So please stay safe and have fun this weekend.
Come out on the Poker Run to Smithers to join Harley Davidson Smithers' 25th Anniversary Celebration.
A.W.O.L. takes the stage at Georges in the Northern Motor Inn on Saturday at 9:30 PM. Cover charge $5.
Causing a fire like this would having devastating results such as a million dollar fine or 3 years in jail and having to pay all firefighting costs.
