Connect with family on BC Family Day

BC Family Day on Monday, Feb. 8, offers British Columbians a holiday weekend

BC Family Day on Monday, Feb. 8, offers British Columbians a holiday weekend to spend with their loved ones, enjoying fun and engaging events throughout the province.

Now in its fourth year, BC Family Day is a time to celebrate what we value – our family, friends and communities.

The B.C. government is once again providing funding to the BC Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) and the Royal BC Museum to help provide free Family Day activities.

Family Day events supported by the BCRPA include a range of family-friendly activities, such as ice skating, face-painting, photo booths, scavenger hunts, Aboriginal engagement and crafts, a pancake breakfast and much more.

The District of Barriere will be celebrating Family Day with a Family Fun Night and PJ Party held at the Ridge (Municipal Hall) on Sunday, Feb. 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

There will be a full contingent of fun things for both kids and adults to do, a concession, silent auction, free movie, games, crafts, Uncle Chris The Clown, booths and even a room called Parents Retreat.  Everyone is encouraged to come on out with your family.
