It’s that time of year again; trees are bursting, flowers are blooming and fish are being released into local creeks to find their way in the wild world.
Saturday, 40,000 chum salmon fingerlings will be sent off at Noons Creek during the Port Moody Ecological Society’s 27th annual Fingerling Festival at the city’s rec centre and the nearby hatchery.
Of course, the fish can’t embark on the next stage in their precarious lives without a party. More than 70 organizations, like Port Moody Station Museum and Mike the Reptile Guy, will have booths and displays to provide opportunities to learn more about their community initiatives as well as environmental stewardship. First Nations artists and carvers will also be on hand to show off their skills while children’s entertainers Bobs & Lolo will perform two concerts, at 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., in the arena.
The event begins at 11 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m., at 100 Ioco Rd. in Port Moody. For more information, go to www.noonscreek.org, or call 604-469-9106.
