Annual picnic goes indoors

Trail's annual Teddy Bear Picnic moved into the Cominco Arena yesterday to avoid potential downpours.



The Teddy Bear Picnic may not have been in the woods Wednesday or even in Gyro Park where it has been held for several years but instead moved indoors to avoid potential downpours.

Hundreds of children, parents, and local family service providers congregated on downtown Trail to hold their get together in the Cominco Arena, providing a “free, fun event,” to introduce local families to some of the many services available to the under six crowd in the Greater Trail area.

“Considering the last-minute venue change I think we’ve got a great turnout,” said Success by Six coordinator and party planner, Sonia Tavares. “It’s great to have a dry place, the city was really gracious to work with us for another location like this.”

The annual event, organized by Success by Six, brings together community service providers and local organizations to show some of ways they benefit the community, as well as providing entertainment, activities, and crafts for the kids.
