On the evening of August 11, the community of Fort St. James came together to celebrate its history.

A ghost walk began at the Church of Our Lady of Good Hope with Father Frank Salmon facilitating as Father Morice.

A mock wedding took place for all to observe.

“The Carrier people have always been so faithful. I loved my time here,” Father Salmon as Father Morice said.

Everyone had the opportunity to meet characters from the past including: Simon Fraser, Sir John Pitka, dance hall girls and more.

Along the walk, everyone enjoyed refreshing lemonade at Spirt Square along with music and stories as participants made their way to the Historic Park to end the night with pie and ice cream.
