On Jan. 1 and 2, from noon to 4 p.m., the Vernon Recreation Centre will kick off the year-long Activate Vernon 125 celebration that honours the city’s rich history from its incorporation in 1892.

The event starts at noon with the official kick-off ceremony and then continues with activities for the whole family both days, including bouncy castles and mini golf from 12:30 p.m to  4 p.m.; outdoor skating at Centennial rink from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Sunday and 12:30 to 2:45 p.m. Monday, and a fun swim with the Wibit (inflatable obstacle course) at the pool from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

A memory book for those wanting to share their Vernon story, as well as a Wishing Tree, to make a wish for the New Year, will also be set up.

Family admission is $10, or $3 for adults and $2 for children 12 and under. Visit Vernon.ca for more information and future 125 event details.
