MAY DAYS curious? May 20, 21st and 22nd 2018

 This year marks the 125th Bday of Kaslo and we hope to make this one heck of a great May Days celebration. Information on events, vendors, entertainment etc can all be found at:      We still have a few spots for non-profit groups to have a table during that weekend. contact

As always we are in desparate need of volunteers for:
* helping to pick up trash in the park
* putting recyclables in the proper places
* street closers on the Monday for the Parade

AND… there is still lots of time to get your floats and costurmes together for this years parade;

Naturally, the theme is KASLO 125 years, so that leaves lots of ideas for birthday outfits, mining, logging and all the other wonderful things that have gone into making Kaslo, what it is today.

So come out and support May Days 2018. and yes, Saturday of May Days is still Kid Centric!!
