Chilling over coffee, bbq and bannock, checking out kiosks, displays, bouncy castle and a dunk tank

National Indigenous Peoples Day 2018 at Tzeachten Sports Field had BBQ burgers, bannock, and a big bouncy slide.

There were country tunes and people of all ages chilling all Thursday afternoon. Some were collecting the take-away keepsakes from the kiosks, info from the displays, or testing their strength at the dunk tank.

The Day of Wellness theme saw a health-oriented focus from several Sto:lo organizations, as well as emergency preparedness information to keep everyone safe.
