#SpendItInFernie Holiday Kickoff happening this Friday 26 November
The Fernie Chamber is encouraging everyone in our community to participate in the Holiday Kickoff
event taking place this Friday 26 November. This is a fun-filled day and evening to kick off the holiday
season and support local businesses by choosing to #SpendItInFernie. Come out and take advantage of
sales, extended shopping hours, door prizes, customer appreciation events, promotions and much more
happening at businesses across town!
On top of getting a kickstart on your holiday shopping, there is so much to do in and around downtown
this Friday. Enjoy a family friendly matinee at the Vogue Theatre, complete a scavenger hunt, do some
crafts, and catch Santa himself and the Griz downtown. Make your way to Station Square at 6:45 pm as
we light up the night with a tree lighting and fireworks display that kicks off at 7pm sharp.
And an added bonus, spend money at any local Fernie business this Friday 26 November for a chance to
win a $1000 gift card to a local business of your choice. Spend from November 27 through to December
31 for chances to win weekly prizes of $500! To enter simply make a purchase at a local business, go to
www.ferniechamber.com to fill in your details to enter, and keep your receipt to claim your prize!
Brad Parsell (Executive Director of the Fernie Chamber) says, “After another challenging year it is so
important that as a community we rally around our local businesses this holiday season. We have such a
diverse and vibrant business community with lots to offer for the perfect gift. Come out this Friday
night, enjoy the carols and fireworks, and check out what’s on offer. I encourage everyone to shop local
this season and #SpendItInFernie!”
