Valley Appreciation Day is fast-approaching.

The event, taking place on July 23, will mark the 24th anniversary of the day of celebration.

Festivities will be situated on 13th Street, just off of the main 7th Avenue strip.

Businesses along 13th Street have been notified of this location through the Invermere Business Committee. The new venue was chose because the wide street makes a nice and efficient change.

Starting time for the event will be at 9 a.m., with set-up between 7 and 7:30 a.m.

The 13th Street festivities will end at noon.

The day will include a logging show, put on by the Gagne family, and Oso Simple will be performing live on stage.

The Invermere Fire Department will be displaying their fire truck at the event once again this year, and Valley Appreciation Day’s signature pancake breakfast will be back as well.

New this year is a cart race event, sponsored by RONA.

The business committee, local clubs and main sponsor Copper Point Resort are looking forward to another successful event. While many business have purchased booths to display goods and other services, others interested in booking in a booth to participate are asked to call Susan Smith at the Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce at 250-342-2844.
