To any who have heard rumours of the demise of Marysville Daze, they are untrue. Marysville Daze will carry on its first Saturday in June tradition this June 6.
But it will be a new look, new venue for the Mark Creek Lions-sponsored event.
This is much more a family oriented festival, says Terry Thompson of the Mark Creek Lions.
“We’re going to hold it in Central Park,” he said. “It’s strictly a one-day event with a pancake breakfast, starting a 8 a.m.”
There will be lots of kids activities, the bouncy castle and games, live entertainment including the Kimberley Pipe Band and Highland Dancers, a family bike ride, vendors and more.
The day will also mark the official opening of the renovated public washrooms at Central Park, a Mark Creek Lions project.
