Saturday, May 5 marks the ninth annual Water Day celebration taking place in beautiful downtown 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 Cedar Creek Cafe.

Running from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. the day features a diverse blend of area musicians, children’s crafts, a variety of community information booths, interactive aquatics displays, the popular silent auction, 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.
