The event will be documented by local photographer Dean Palmer, who will also take family portraits with the iconic sculpture after the group hug, a news release said. Other activities include a chance to contribute to The Bear’s book of portraits between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and two film screenings including  Brother Bear and The Last Stand of the Great Bear, in

Event at Marden
All the fixings of a summertime neighbourhood carnival will be a part of the indoor fun for Family Day celebrations at the Royal Distributing Athletic Performance Centre in Marden. The indoor fields, located just north of the city, will feature jumping castles, mini golf, a climbing wall, information booths and carnival games for the holiday.
The celebration will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and proceeds from admission will benefit the Ariss and District Lions Club.
Y happenings
The local YMCA-YWCA has chosen Family Day to launch this year’s Strong Kids Campaign, with a goal of raising $77,000 to give financial assistance to kids and families. The community, including Y members and non-members, are invited to the local Y for the Family Day holiday on Feb. 20. The Y will be selling passes for the day’s activities, with all proceeds going to the Strong Kids Campaign, a news release said. Activities include such things as family zumba, family swims, crafts and more, and there will be fundraising events throughout the day.
