Kimberley’s Virtual Flannel Fest is this Saturday

Kimberley’s Virtual Flannel Fest is on this Saturday, February 13, 2021 and while we can’t gather in the Platzl this year, there are still plenty of online ‘flannelly’ activities for one and all to enjoy.

Karen Cetinski from Rocky Mountain Event Planners, who is organizing Flannel Fest, says there appears to be great buy in from the community.

“Entries are pouring in,” she said. “People need something to do. And this is great for families trying to entertain kids in the pandemic. Get out there and build your snow sculpture, decorate your window, send ina video for the dance contest.”

Kimberley is the most social place she has ever lived, Cetinksi says.

“People are not seeing the people they normally see, even if it’s just to wave to in the Platzl. So tune in on Saturday and see some familiar faces.”

Flannel Fest will be presenting all the fun submissions to the various contests, plus entertainment in a FaceBook live feed on Saturday from 2 to 7 p.m..

Any photo you wish to submit can simply be tagged #FlannelFest2021 and emailed to info@rmep.ca

The U.S. is recommending a “pause” in administration of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine to investigate reports of potentially dangerous blood clots. In a joint statement Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration said it was investigating clots in six women in the days after vaccination, in combination with reduced platelet counts.
