On the weekend of the 9-11th September, Rosslanders and families from surrounding areas joined us for our annual weekend family festival, celebrating our community’s rich gold-mining history! It was fun for everyone, including citizens dressed in turn-of-the-century clothing, the parade along Columbia Avenue, family events, children’s games, outhouse races, sports events, Red Feather Saloon, pancake breakfast, outdoor stage entertainment, indoor variety show, and the not-to-be-missed Rossland Fall Fair!
The Rossland Arts Council (RCAC) participated in the annual Golden City Days Parade 2016. The weather was picture perfect, Columbia Ave was full of families and the 28 float parade was buzzing with excitement.
The idea for the Rossland Arts Council float came from a tribute to the huge renovation that is being untaken over the summer and fall. “We wanted to thank all the people who have volunteered their time or had donated funds to the community project. We had a lot of help creating the float and RCAC board members, friends and the Rossland Boomtown Garter Girls joined us in the celebration” said Renate Flemming, President of the RCAC.
