Once again, Aboriginal Day will be celebrated in style in Fort St. James.

On June 21, there will be a broad range of free and fun activities for the family.

The activities are being offered in conjunction with the Fort St. James National Historic Site due to the continued construction taking place at Nak’albun. The site will be waiving entrance fees for the day as well to allow for full community participation.

There will be some games from 10 a.m. until noon, and boat building for the boar races will begin at 10 a.m. as well.

Bannock making will once again help to fill the gap for hungry participants and Lillian Sam will be telling stories and sharing history and information related to Chief Kw’eh.

Drumming, singing, lunch, cake cutting, and more games are all on the itinerary for the day.

Fireworks will once again light up the sky over Cottonwood Park at 11 p.m..
