Rock Creek will be busy this weekend

Rock Creek will play host to Riverfest on Saturday and the Boogie Bash all weekend long.

Rock Creek will be a busy place this weekend with the Association of Injured Motorcyclists Interior Chapter (AIM) 26th annual Boogie Bash running over the long weekend at the fairgrounds and Riverfest running from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at the Rock Creek Market.

Riverfest organizers are promising events throughout the day, including live music. The official opening and blessing of the river by Reverend Cathy Straume is scheduled for 10 a.m.

At 10:30 and again at noon, Oliver resident Dan Skaros will give a presentation on the danger of rattlesnakes.

There will be aboriginal drummers and speakers, a fish pond for the kids, gold panning demonstrations and the market lot will be full of vendors.

The Boogie Bash will bring riders from all corners of the province to party and raise funds for the AIM Interior Chapter. The purpose of AIM is to assist motorcycle accident victims or their families following an accident. When invited by the injured rider or their family, AIM provides regular weekly hospital visits and helps with expenses.

The Boogie Bash is the major fundraiser each year that provides the Interior Chapter the funds to do that work.

There are a number of organized events planned throughout the weekend— a poker run, Bavarian garden, bike games in the arena, and live music at night.
