Updates on fields

Due to the high levels of precipitation we received in May and June, the Recreation Department posts updates about the field conditions each day on Facebook and bhubble.

Consider “liking” the recreation page and you’ll receive our updates immediately. We appreciate your patience and understanding when the fields are closed.

Although closures are annoying, it does ensure the fields stay in good playing condition for the rest of the season.

Canadian Burlesque and Cabaret legend Sasha Van Bon Bon is coming to Rossland on Friday, June 14 in the Rossland Art Gallery.

Doors open at 7:45 p.m. and tickets are $15 in advance at RossVegas.

Last Home Alone

This course is for children ages 10-13 years.

Corelating
