26th Annual Fingerling Festival

26th Annual Fingerling Festival

Posted on May 2nd, 2018

On Saturday May 5th from 11am to 3pm the Port Moody Ecological Society is inviting everyone to attend their annual Fingerling Festival featuring Bobs and Lolo and a salmon release.

A fun, free Festival at the Noons Creek Hatchery in Port Moody, located just across the walking bridge on the north side of the skating arena, 300 Ioco Road.

This iconic environmental festival provides an opportunity for children to help release thousands of young chum salmon into Noons Creek to help these fish begin their four-year journey at sea, and to visit the hatchery with its fish-rearing pond and restored wetland. In the Port Moody Skating Arena, over 60 organizations will provide opportunities to learn more about community initiatives and environmental stewardship.

There will be First Nations artists and carvers, wildlife artists, Metro Van Regional Parks, amongst others. There will also be First Nations displays within the ice-rink complex plus other performing groups in addition to the ever popular Bobs & Lolo, who will be back again this year to give performances at 11:30 am and 1:00 pm in the arena.

The Fingerling Festival is our only fundraiser of the year and includes raffles and a hot dog tent. People are encouraged to carpool, use public transit or cycle to the event as this is a green event, and parking is very limited. For additional information, visit www.noonscreek.org, phone the hatchery at 604-469-9106, or call Festival organizer Dave Bennie on 604-617-1163.
