The quiet little hamlet of Bragg Creek won’t be so quiet for one weekend in July.
There will be plenty of action at the 59th annual Bragg Creek Days July 23-24 for folks from the ages of 1 to 99.
The fun will really kick-off bright and early Saturday morning with a delicious pancake breakfast hosted by Redwood Meadows Emergency Services volunteer firefighters. Each year the pancake breakfast attracts about 500 people who are eager to get the festivities under way.
The action-packed parade is at 10 a.m.
“There are floats, sometimes the Shriners are there, it’s very family friendly,” said Shaye Radford of the community association. The parade is famous for water being sprayed from some of the floats.
There is live entertainment throughout the day and folks can enjoy carnival and midway games, great food and a beer garden held outside at the Bragg Creek Community Centre.
The Market Square will also be held Saturday and Sunday in which locals can display their delightful wares, craft and goodies.
On July 24, the Ride for Sight Foundation is hosting its third Ride for Sight Poker Rally in which motorcyclists can ride in the majestic foothills to help people with vision issues.
There will also be a show and shine on Sunday to go along with the other activities.
