The Tulameen Ferris Wheel

Tumaleen hosts annual Fun Days

Four days of family fun draws locals and visitors out to the community of Tulameen during the B.C. Day long weekend

An annual event held in the beautiful community of Tulameen draws people of all ages to visit, each BC Day long-weekend in August.

The four day weekend includes; a Slo-pitch tournament,  beach volleyball games and tournament, games for kids, horseshoes, refreshment garden, duck race and a Monday morning pancake breakfast.

On Saturday, the parade was lead by Sgt. Barry Kennedy of the Princeton RCMP followed by various floats, hilariously outfitted ball teams, kids on bikes, the Tulameen Ferris Wheel and representatives of Princeton;  Mayor Frank Armitage, along with  Princeton Youth Ambassador, Alex Burke and vice-ambassador Kassidy McCutcheon, (driven by CAO Rick Zerr)  followed by Princeton Councillors Kim Maynard and Marilyn Harkness.

“Uncle Chuck and his Truck” represented the Princeton Legion and trucks from the Tulameen Fire Department finished off the fun-filled parade.

A few parade attendees provided a “cooling down” for those in the parade by super soaking sprays with water, which was accepted gratefully by most and with good humour by the rest.

Various vendors provided for an outdoor  shopping experience during the Saturday Street Fair held from 9 a.m.,  until 3 p.m. The all day fair also included; a bake sale, cake walk, kids carnival games, kids school yard games and a beef barbecue for all.

Tulameen Days happens each year with thanks to the amazing volunteers form the Tulameen Community Club, Otter Valley Fish and Game Club and the Tulameen Fire Department.
