Golden weekend in the Golden City

This weekend was packed with activities as Rossland celebrated its 40th Golden City Days.

This weekend was packed with activities as Rossland celebrated its 40th Golden City Days.

The streets of upper Rossland were packed as Golden City Days parade made its way across town by way of Second Avenue. And while the parade definitely benefits from the much roomier Columbia Avenue, the logistics made a lot of sense.

After the pancake breakfast at the fire hall, people just had to wait around outside for the parade to start.

And once that was over, the Rossland Fall Fair, held at the arena as usual, was just a short walk away, no climbing or descending hills necessary.

With most activities moved to the arena parking lot around the fall fair, it seemed that the events were better attended by people who wouldn’t usually make it up to the arena on other years and kept the bustling atmosphere going for a longer time.

All over the city there were other activities going on, the Golden City Grind, Rubberhead bike festival, the softball tournament and music at many establishments.

It was wonderful to see that despite the construction downtown, the event was still  well attended and continued the tradition on its 40th anniversary.
