FCSS Drumheller had another successful Family Day event. There were 412 attendees to the event on Monday. 

"It is just a touch down from the previous year, I would attribute that to that there was a Dragons game during the day which is good because it means there are even more things for families to participate in. I think it just meant that our afternoon was a little bit quieter than it had been in previous years because they were perhaps at the Dragons game," explained April Harrison, Family & Community Support Services Coordinator for the Town of Drumheller.

There were many activities for all ages at the Badlands Community Facility.

"We had three different inflatables including one with an obstacle course, which is always good fun, lots of competition between kids and also between them and their parents. There were activities in the library, there were different age group appropriate activities. There was crafts, games, snacks, and drinks in one of the multipurpose rooms in the facility as well," continued Harrison.

Another couple of activities that were families participated in was a pop-up escape room and a treasure hunt around the BCF.

"The big thing about an event like that is that it can't happen without volunteers and we are so thankful to those people who did take the time on a holiday to come and support the event and make it happen. Some people, in particular, the people from RBC, the Dragons, as well as some students and town staff that took time on their day off to come to help out too," Harrison concluded.

They are already in the planning stages for next year.
