Renewed spirit for Silver City Days; city unveils logo and website

The city’s revamp of Silver City Days is promising to bring back the old favourites with a new flair.

The city’s revamp of Silver City Days is promising to bring back the old favourites with a new flair.

Details of the four-day event, which begins May 4, are now available on the city’s new website silvercitydays.com.

The dedicated site launched this week along with a refreshed logo and new tagline, ‘A Homecoming Celebration.’

The revitalized theme represents a fun, all ages multi-day festival that offers a true Trail cultural experience for the whole family, says Keith Smyth.

“We have added some new activities to the event that we are excited about,” explained Smyth, operations manager for the Silver City Days committee. “The Spokane Street Food Fair, and the Silver City Days Esplanade Market just to name a few,” he added. “We’ve also booked the Cominco Arena for the Saturday Sidewalk Cafe and are busy working on making this a food and entertainment-based venue for all to enjoy.”

The new website is part of the Silver City Days makeover, but will be a valuable resource in years to come, Smyth continued.

“The new site is our go-to place for all Silver City Days information, schedules and activities,” explained Smyth. “We want to make all the necessary information available for anyone accessing the site, (and) the site will be our main tool for our marketing and promotional campaign for the event for years to come.”

Another special event returning after a one-year hiatus, is the Home of Champions Induction Ceremony, slated for Thursday night at dusk.

The Greater Trail Home of Champions Society will honour past and present residents that have excelled in business and sports or greatly contributed to the cultural landscape of our region.

This year the following individuals will be recognized: Graham Kenyon for Environmental Health & Conservation; Don Freschi for Television Production & Business; Ryan Huska for Hockey, the Beaver Valley Nitehawks (2013-2014) for Hockey; Joseph Cecchini for Skeleton Racing; Kimberly Joines for Paralympic Ski Racing; Arron Santesso for Academic & Literacy Achievement; and, Joe Zanussi for Professional Hockey.

Nominations are received on an ongoing basis, but the cut off for the May ceremony will be March 2016.
