Saturday, May 3 marks the 11th annual Water Day celebration in Winlaw.

Started by the Winlaw Watershed Committee, this highly colourful event is a celebration of all things water, and the importance of water and all its sources in the Slocan Valley.

It takes place at and around the newly renovated Kayu’s Café and the Cedar Creek Gardens green space in downtown Winlaw.

Running from noon to midnight, the day features a diverse blend of area musicians, children’s crafts, a variety of community information booths, interactive aquatics displays, artisan vendors, and of course, the Water Day Parade which begins at 2 p.m.

Lead by the Samba Band, those in the parade will walk, sing, and dance their way down to the Slocan River for more celebrations. As this is a well-attended event, it is asked that those attending be respectful of the community when parking. Everyone is asked to use caution whether attending or passing through the area.

If attending please be prepared for any type of weather.

To stay in touch about Water Day, find them on Facebook at Winlaw Water Day Festival 11th Annual.
