Father’s Day – Black Powder

June 17

Father's Day Poster

Step back into the 1880’s with Dad this Father’s Day with muskets, pistols, bows and arrows – and so much more! Spectators of all ages will enjoy two performances from the Red Mountain Renegades! With pistols, shotguns and rifles these cowboy action shooting shows will take you back to the days of the Wild West. The Fraser Valley Frontiersmen will be on site demonstrating antique firearms, primitive archery & tomahawk throwing. There’ll be a Trader’s Row with vendors, spinners and weavers and live music with Bruce Coughlan from Tillers Follie.

And of course Father’s Day wouldn’t be complete without a sizzlin’ barbeque!

Another option is to book the whole family into our restaurant for a traditional Roast Beef Dinner for Lunch! Roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, home-made gravy and seasonal veggies for $17.95. Or Vegetarian Quiche with a side salad $12.95 The reservations are almost full now so plan to bring a picnic or enjoy a variety of items at the BBQ going on throughout the day. Cheeseburgers $7; Veggie Burger $7; Hamburgers $6; Smokies $5; Hot Dogs $4; Side of Potato Salad $3; Pop or Water $2 and SnoCones or Popcorn!
