Chetwynd, Festivals & Events
This past weekend in Chetwynd sure was one for the books; there was so much to see and do that a person almost didn't have time for it all!
First thing Thursday morning when I was taking my morning walk through the Rodeo Subdivision I could hear the chainsaws starting up their buzzing, which was super exciting! I have usually always been around for the championship, but had missed it for the last two years so I was quite happy to be in town for this years.
There were so many new vendors down at the site selling arts and crafts, and lots of great food and snack; this was a great thing because it was quite warm out all weekend so having food and drink readily available was great!
After seeing everything around the site on the first day I didn't think that I could be surprised any more, until Saturday morning came and there were two horse and buggy teams taking people on rides from downtown to the carving site! I wasn't so much interested in the ride as I was in just playing with the horses, who were big sweet hearts which is no surprise being raised by locals to the Chetwynd community.
This weekend was the best example to remind me just why I love being a local here, and calling Chetwynd home: the people are awesome, the events get better every year, and there really is nothing better than getting to spend the weekend outside with new or familiar faces enjoying artists work their magic!
