It’s back again! Last year’s Radium Days brought back a 10-year tradition to the Village of Radium Hot Springs, and that revived tradition is still going strong with the return of the June 11 event.
Radium Days, held in conjunction with the BritsBest Car Show, will kick off at noon with the Radium Day Parade featuring colourful, decorated floats by participating businesses and clubs.
The Kimberley Pipe Band, a 30-piece marching band, will also be attending this year’s event, which “will add a tremendous amount of energy and spirit to our fun-filled day,” said Heather Perkull of the Radium Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce and Radium Visitor Centre.
The Kimberley Pipe Band will be playing during the day on the stage, as will local band L8TE.
The Kids’ Zone will be open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., complete with crafts, face-painting, a bouncy house, and new this year, a small petting zoo, a magician, and more.
A Laser Dome, courtesy of Tee Breeze Entertainment, is also a new feature of this year’s Radium Days.
The BritsBest Car Show will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Radium Ball Park.
An outdoor market with local vendors, and a canteen with local organizations serving up pop and hotdogs will be open throughout the day, which creates a great opportunity for residents to support local clubs and businesses.
Tickets are $1 for one ticket, or $15 for 20. There is no charge for children under the age of two.
The Kids Zone is four tickets per person, and the Laser Dome is two tickets per person.
“Radium Days is a must go-to event for both local residents and visitors,” said Purkell. “Not only does it showcase everything the Village of Radium has to offer, it also brings friends and neighbours together for a day filled with entertainment, fun, and the BritsBest Car Show.”
