Every year, the Port Moody Ecological Society invites the community to celebrate the annual Fingerling Festival at the Noons Creek Hatchery in Port Moody: the largest festival of its kind in the Tri-Cities.
The 2013 Fingerling Festival is May 4.
Entrance is free but we ask for kid-friendly food donations for the Share Society’s Food Bank.
The kids will have a ball seeing Bobs & Lolo in Concert at 11:30am and 1:30pm
This multi-award winning society continues to be 100% volunteer-run and has operated for seven days a week for the past 20 years. Many of the founding members are still active within the society and are in attendance at this celebration.
This popular community event provides an opportunity for children to help release 40,000 young salmon into Noons Creek for their four-year journey at sea. In the adjacent Port Moody Skating Arena at 300 Ioco Road, a broad variety of displays provide opportunities to learn more about community initiatives and environmental stewardship. Over eighty organizations with informative displays and interactive children’s activities attend, including Greenpeace, Habitat for Humanity, and Wildlife Rescue.
Funds raised are used to help operate the hatchery, offer school programmes, and maintain a water quality testing laboratory.
Parking is limited. People are encouraged to carpool, use public transit or cycle to the event. Please take out what you bring in: this event is a green event.
Photo opportunities are available prior to the festival. Volunteers and donations needed.
