Season of the eagles and salmon set to start

On three consecutive weekends a grand celebration occurs in Harrison Mills which was created to honour the “Season of the Eagles and Salmon”. A Season with a jam-packed line up of entertaining and educational activities for everyone of all ages.

The celebration begins with the 19th Annual Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival on Nov. 15 and 16. This family-friendly event offers the very best eagle viewing opportunities from the land or from the water on board the popular “safari boat”. The first stop on the Festival route should be the indoor Exhibitors Hall at Leq’a:mel with wildlife displays, green businesses, environmental organizations and much more. Other participating sites include the Mission Information Centre, Inch Creek Fish Hatchery, Kilby Historic Site, Harrison RV Resort, Tapadera Estates, Eagle Point Community Park and Pretty Estates Resort. Festival-goers can support the event by purchasing one of the many souvenirs available and take part in the “Harrison Hot Spots” promotion for a chance to win a Celestron telescope and other great prizes.

The following two weekends occur at the Pretty Estates Resort. The Harrison Salmon Festival, will take place on the Nov. 22 and 23 weekend and is hosted by the Sts’ailes (First Nation) and the Salmon Stronghold. On Nov. 29 and 30 there will be a nature photography display hosted by Chung Ai and the first Pretty Estates fundraising dinner and auction.

Kilby Historic Site will also be open both weekends.
