The sun shone and there were lots of interesting activities happening at the Fraser Fest celebration held at Xat’sull Heritage Village on Labour Day, Monday.

We had more than 50 people there, plus staff and volunteers,” says Miriam Schilling, the Soda Creek band’s community economic development co-ordinator.

“Weather was fabulous and everyone had a great time.”

The event included guided tours, crafts, entertainment, Lehal game, pot-luck dinner and live entertainment with the group Synergy and Marin Patenaude.

The event marked the 20th anniversary of Fin Donnelly’s first swim down the Fraser River.

Fraser Fest is the first of seven community festivals celebrating that anniversary.
