Bring your loved ones to Touchstones Nelson to celebrate Valentine’s Day and BC’s new holiday, Family Day.

There will be music by James Lamb, storytelling by Eileen Delehanty Pearkes, art activities for all ages and treats. Bring a photo of your Valentine to incorporate into your Valentine’s Day card.

Check out the permanent museum exhibit where the docents will be happy to answer your questions about the history of Nelson. View the current art gallery exhibits: Aliens Among Us: BC’s Recent Plant and Animal Arrivals (on loan from the Royal BC Museum), and Arin Fay: Beyond the Batholith, Writing Women of the Kootenay/Columbia Basin.

Touchstones Nelson is hosting this event by donation. One half of all donations raised over the course of the day will be donated to the EcoSociety’s programming at the visitor’s centre at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park.

The Winter Family Fair runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. this coming Sunday.
