The Marysville Lions may no longer exist as a separate club, having amalgamated with the Kimberley Lions Club to form the Mark Creek Lions, but that doesn’t mean the big event, Marysville Daze, has ended.
Marysville Daze is a tradition in Kimberley and the Mark Creek Lions are ready to present its 53rd rendition this weekend, Saturday, June 1.
It all kicks off with a pancake breakfast beginning at 8 a.m. at the Marysville Arena. Pancakes, sausages, hash browns, strawberries and cream are on the menu.
Entertainment starts at noon and features the Kimberley Pipe Band, Cranbrook All Girls Drum and Bugle Band and the Bunkhouse Boys with displays by the Dragon Forge, the Kimberley Dance Academy, Gymnastics Club and Highland Dancers. There is an all new Kids Korner with lots of activities to keep the kids amused while parents explore the Flea Market and Craft Show or enjoy the entertainment.
Bingo will be called from 2 to 4 p.m. and there is a pig roast with service beginning at noon. For the 19 plus crowd, in the evening, 9 p.m. thru 1 a.m., it’s “Marysville’s Hard Daze Night” featuring the DJ ”RTHREE”. All activities are in the arena, so come rain or shine, make sure you come and enjoy a memorable time.
In addition to all the fun at the arena, Marysville Artisans are celebrating their ninth anniversary. Join the many artisans that make up this cooperative for an open house between noon-5 p.m.
The Marysville Historic School will be open for tours — former teachers will be on hand to provide a glimpse into the past in this historic one room schoolhouse from 11a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Kimberley Library Heritage Book Store in Marysville will be having a sale. There is a great selection of heritage and other gently used books for sale with proceeds going to support your local library.
