If you are looking for a fun activity for the family this summer, you might like to consider the Cranbrook and District Arts Council Teddy Bear Scavenger Hunt.

A total of 24 artsy Teddy Bears are located in various Cranbrook Businesses and offices, waiting to be discovered.  A cash prize will be awarded at the Teddy Bear Picnic, August 23rd to the person who correctly identifies all Teddy Bears in the shortest period of time. All Teddy Bears will be on display from July 1st until August 22nd.  Starting Thursday July 3rd, clue sheets to help you locate all the Teddy Bears will be available at the Cranbrook and District Arts Council Gallery office, located at 135 Tenth Avenue South, Cranbrook. When you collect your clue sheet, the date and time will be recorded.  When you return the sheet, it will be checked and once again the date and time recorded.

Anyone interested in dressing their own bear can still purchase one from the Cranbrook and District Arts Council.  All Teddy Bears are invited to the Teddy Bear Picnic in Rotary Park on August 23rd at 11:30am when they will be judged and cash prizes awarded in the three categories of Business; Over 14years and Under 14years.

Cranbrook and District Arts Council is grateful to Spring Honda for their sponsorship of this event and also to all participating businesses.   All proceeds to Arts Council projects.

Cranbrook and District Arts Council Gallery Office Hours are Tuesday to Friday 11:00am to 5:00pm; Saturday 10:00 am to 2:00pm. We will also be at the Cranbrook Farmer’s Market on Saturday July 5th with our bears and new 2015 Kootenay Artists Calendars.  For more information call Marisa at 250-426-4223.
