The rural town of Yarrow is set to wow with another installment of Yarrow Days on June 1 and 2.
This year marks the 49th annual celebration of small-town living, and you don’t want to miss out on the fun, tradition and hospitality.
Always on the first weekend of June, Yarrow Days kicks off Saturday morning with a very popular parade. Onlookers can enjoy a long, jubilant affair full of floats, classic cars, marching bands, tractors and more. Be sure to arrive early with your lawn chair to secure a good vantage point as the route fills up quickly.
Following the parade, Yarrow Pioneer Park comes alive as the main stage is packed with live music and dance performances all afternoon. You’ll also find kids crafts, vendors, a barbecue, pony rides and more.
And be sure not to miss this year’s special feature activities celebrating Yarrow’s rich farming history — interactive poultry and dairy cow milking demos.
Elsewhere in town during the day, festival-goers can enjoy other activities such as a fun run, a show and shine, open house at the Yarrow Firehall and new this year, a beer and wine festival.
Once the sun goes down, it is time to kick up some dust at the dinner and dance, this year featuring the Valley’s rockabilly favourites, The Lounge Hounds.
On Sunday morning, all are welcome at the interdenominational church service in the park at 10 a.m.
After the service, there will be a community-wide brunch for all to enjoy at 11 a.m., followed by a skateboard jam in the park from noon to 2 p.m.
