FHACA Winter Carnival 2023

On February 25, FHACA is organising our first winter carnival since COVID stopped us in our tracks. We are looking forward to see everyone out again on Saturday February 25 between 1 and 4 pm. The horse drawn carriage -always popular with the kids- will be at 31 Sutton Place at Fisher Heights Park between 1-3 pm only, so do not arrive too late.

There is a fire pit with marchmallows, we have crafts, the rinks are open and we’ll serve coffee, hot chocolate and snack. It looks like it is going to be a coldish day, but hey, we are Canadians and don’t we all embrace winter?

Looking forward to see all our young (and not so young) residents again!
