There was no shortage of ways to celebrate our city’s heritage at Golden City Days this past weekend.
Festivities kicked off Thursday afternoon and continued straight through to Sunday, with highlights including gold-themed activities and workshops, the hugely popular parade through downtown, a fall fair and plenty of live entertainment.
Every where you went in Rossland people were dressed like pioneers and prospectors. It was an impressive display of community pride.
While the main purpose of the weekend was to celebrate our proud gold mining past, the Golden City’s present day identity as an outdoor recreation hub was also embraced.
Friday marked the official re-opening of Rossglen Bike Park, and on Sunday the Golden City Grind trail run attracted an impressive 125 racers. There were also softball and golf tournaments throughout the weekend, as well as trial courses set up for youth interested in skateboarding, cycling and parkour. And, who could forget, the second annual outhouse races!
There was something for everyone to enjoy. It was a weekend that made us feel proud to call Rossland home.
