The first winter activity in January is the Snowflake Festival. It is an annual winter tradition for over 10 years! Come join or watch the curling bonspiel on the Lake. The Snowflake Festival is the same weekend. They have a concert outside from local artists, bonfires, and fireworks just to name a few. The Taste of the Valley is an event we have celebrating all the local restaurants. They all prepare their signature food and gather by the white way. You get a food passport and it gets stamped after you try each restaurant. Great way to experience what the Valley has to offer. All of these exciting events start on January 17 2020.
