Family Day celebrations coming to Agassiz, Harrison

Bouncy castles, face painting and much more Feb. 10

Ready for some family fun? Both Agassiz and Harrison have Family Day events sure to please all-ages and leave youngsters with painted faces and depleted energy.

Agassiz’s Free Family Fun Day

On Saturday, Feb. 10 the Community Recreation & Cultural Centre (CRCC) will be filled with family fun.

With three giant inflatables, face painting, community displays and a family art project, everyone can have a good time.

“It’s a great way to come out, have some fun and try something new,” said CRCC recreation programmer Kristen Patrice. “Families that play together, stay together.”

Along with endless bouncy amusement, the CRCC will have a photo booth where attendees can get instant family portraits and magnetic frames for a fridge photo reminder of their great day.

“We will also have an art room set up [with] a family art project facilitated by an art instructor,” Patrice said. “They’re going to paint a creative canvas representative of the members of their family.” Paintings will be put on display at the CRCC for a period of time before families can take them home.

“I always look forward to this event,” Patrice said. “I think it’s because it gets gray and dreary this time of year [and] it’s a good opportunity to come inside and have some fun.”

Agassiz’s Free Family Fun Day is Feb. 10 from 12:30 p.m.-3 p.m. at the CRCC –6660 Pioneer Avenue.

The CRCC will also be offering free gym admission from 8 a.m.- 1 p.m on Feb. 12 to recognize the actual Family Day holiday.

Family Day in Harrison

The Harrison Memorial Hall will host crafts, games and more for a Family Day celebration on Saturday, Feb. 10 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Indoor bouncy castles, button making, games and face painting by Green Momma Creations will keep the little ones happy, and live readings and meet and greets from the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. will entertain all ages.

Science World demonstrations throughout the day will wow attendees, and those with a more adventurous spirit can try their hand at the Sasquatch Selfie Scavenger Hunt.

Competitors will use the Tourism Harrison app for clues to help them find, and take pictures with, Sasquatch-related artifacts and items around the Village.

Scavenger hunt prizes range from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory chocolate, gifts from Pampered Pet Boutique, a child’s ski pass to Sasquatch Mountain Resport and a grand prize of a one-night stay at the Harrison Beach Hotel.

“It’s a great way to spend time with the family,” said Tourism Harrison event coordinator Stephanie Gallamore. “There’s lots to do [and] it is by donation so it’s almost free.”
