Step into Spring in the Harrison River Valley

It’s a wondrous time of year: trees are budding and fresh spring growth is emerging from the sleepy winter soil. Meanwhile, up in the mountains, there’s still plenty of snow and opportunities for adventure, with the bonus of warm spring temperatures to make snowsports even more enjoyable! There is so much to see and do in the Harrison River Valley at this time of year, we’ve compiled a list of activities and events for you. Gather your friends and family and head #justuptheroad for springtime fun! 

Bring Spring into Your Home With Fresh Tulips

While we eagerly await the opening of this year’s Harrison Tulip Festival, in the meantime you can bring some spring into your home with vibrant Tulips and fragrant Hyacinths from the Onos Farms Flower Stand (5039 Lougheed Highway)! A 5-stem tulip bunch is only 5 bucks (3 bunches for $12) and a 5-stem hyacinth bunch is only 6 bucks (2 bunches for $10). Note: Bring cash as this is a serve-yourself stand.
