It’s that glorious time of year when we have weekly block parties for two months, block parties with great live music and great craft brew. If you haven’t made the downtown jaunt on a Wednesday evening over the last handful of summers, DO IT! The Wednesday Night Socials a perfect way to end hump day. 

medium_lineupA_0.jpgAs Calgary city folk by day and small town Fernie fans on the weekend we are often torn.

We get to Fernie and want to slow down and deeply breath in that fresh Fernie mountain air! Yet from time to time we find ourselves missing some big city conveniences.

I've been asked thousands of times whether Fernie has changed since I was in grade or high school (and probably written about the subject hundreds of times). Sometimes it isn't a question, rather a statement. "Wow, Fernie has changed so much since you grew up here!" or "You've probably seen so many changes over the years!"
