The valley was a busy place this past week, as a whole host of adult and children’s activities entertained and delighted young and old alike. Some of the Columbia Valley’s finest models took to the runway for the annual thrift store fashion show Saturday (May 5); The Valley Voices performed their annual spring concert at Christ Church Trinity; dancers from across the valley put on an infectious dance show at the David Thompson Secondary School theatre, also on May 5; Carson Scheffer and Kaydn Chase of the Windermere Valley Childcare Society browse some of the artwork at the Lil’ Peeps Art Show at Pynelogs on Friday (May 4);┬áBirder Russell Cannings shows Shannon Swan the sights of the Columbia Valley during one of the opening activities of the Wings Over the Rockies Festival on Monday (May 7).┬áNat McGrath and Oso Simple entertain with some acoustic guitar at Pynelogs Open Mic Night May 4.
