Indigenous Peoples’ Day returns to Gyro Park in Trail on Saturday after a two-year event hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Myrt Servatius, president of the Kootenay South Métis Society, encourages community members of all ages to come out for a day of family-fun, great food, music, and dance.
“Come one, come all, everyone welcome,” she said on a rainy Tuesday. “Bring your lawn chairs and don’t forget your umbrella!”
Talent from across the region will be at the park to entertain guests throughout the day including; fiddlers from Rossland, jingle dancers from Nelson, and drummers from Creston.
Alongside artisans selling their one-of-a-kind wares, there’ll be plenty of food for sale such as buffalo burgers, and society members are baking up a storm this week for guests to try their bannock for free, with a spread of butter and strawberry jam.
The Saturday, June 18 event starts at 11 a.m. and will run until 4 p.m.
