Members of the Horsefly River Roundtable and the community of Horsefly are inviting everyone to come celebrate B.C. Rivers Day and the return of the sockeye this weekend.
The 2013 Horsefly River Salmon Festival gets underway Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 28 and 29, at Horsefly.
A diverse schedule of activities is planned for the celebration including talks with knowledgeable local River Interpreters who will be on hand to answer watershed questions and DFO information kiosks and representatives will also be on hand to talk about the Horsefly sockeye run.
Children can also take part in arts and crafts at the event or walk the area’s fully accessible Horsefly Salmon Habitat Trail to the spawning channels.
There will also be a family event, called the Salmon Festival Coffee House Concert, held at the Community Hall Saturday night.
