The Windermere Public Beach will be the proud location of the 2nd Annual Windermere Winter Games on January 29.
The event’s return, sponsored by the Windermere Community Association and the Columbia Basin Trust, will help further the makings of the games becoming a definite New Year event, every year.
“We’ll have hockey shinnies in the rink set up. We really want to use the rink,” said Windermere Community Association Vice-President Cheri Hann, who is chairing the event.
Also featured at the games will be skating, pond hockey, relays and tobogganing.
A bonfire and live entertainment will also be there for guests. However, who will be entertaining is still in the works, Hann said.
“There will be food at the event, but we’re looking for others to help with that,” said Hann.
Jo-El Buerlen, who will be running the games at the event, stresses that family orientation and fun is integral to the games.
“We really want families to come,” Hann adds.
The Akisqnuk First Nation has also been invited to the event to incorporate First Nations games for families to enjoy as well.
The event will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Families who plan on attending and have dogs are asked to leave their pets at home.
