Pioneer Day is quickly approaching and this year the Village of Hazelton has added new things and they have been working hard to make this one of the best years ever.

Things will kick off with the annual pancake breakfast which will be held this year at the Historic BC Cafe and the 10 kilometre Fun Run and Bike decorating will commence then as well.

Following that there will be the traditional parade on Saturday and prizes awarded for the best floats and costumes for adults and children.

Tri Town Theatre will hold their annual matinee and there will be free horse-drawn wagon rides after the parade.

There will be a scavenger hunt, watermelon eating contest, raffles, live music, the renowned Iron Chef Competition, face painting, kids games and prizes, bouncy tents and much more.

A new addition this year is the three-on-three baseball tournament and people are encouraged to bring their team and test their skills against others.

There will also be the usual food and merchandise vendors as well.

Things will finish off in the evening with an adult dance at the Skeena Ice Arena and the 6th Candles By The River luminary for cancer. People will able to purchase luminaries throughout the day as well as the event in the evening.
