Tailgate party at Home Hardware

Craft sale, vendor demos, barbecue, kids activities and more at June 8th event

Saturday, June 8th, head to Home Hardware for a fun-filled tailgate party event.

“Home Hardware hosts the tailgate party to bring retail and entertainment together. Or as we call it, ‘entertailing’,” remarked owner Al Miller.

From 10-3 p.m., browse the market stalls at the Crafts & Collectibles Sale. Kids will enjoy the face painting from 10-2 p.m., with Rudy the Clown and Handy Andy making special guest appearances. There will also be a mini golf station and kids colouring table. Bring your appetite to the barbecue, on from 11-2 p.m. And be sure to meet a wide range of vendors in the store, demonstrating their products throughout the day. For example, check out Taiga and Cub Cadet, two vendors you won’t want to miss.

In true Home Hardware community spirit, the tailgate party will benefit several local organizations. All proceeds collected from vendors at the Crafts and Collectibles sale are going to the Hospice Society of the Columbia Valley, while the barbecue will support the Columbia Valley Interact Club.

“We want you to come out and celebrate with us. Come join in the fun, bring your kids to get their faces painted and check out all of the great vendors showcasing their products,” said Mr. Miller. “We look forward to seeing everyone enjoy this great event.”

For more information on the tailgate party, see the Invermere Home Hardware Tailgate Facebook event.

On the heels of the tailgate party June 8th will be the grand opening for Invermere’s new sister store in Golden. Al and Lucy Miller opened up the Golden Home Building Centre in December, just in time for the Christmas holidays.

“We can offer the same great selection as we have in Invermere, and have it delivered to Golden,” Mr. Miller said.

Golden’s grand opening celebration takes place June 13-16th, with joint sales happening at both locations, as well as a barbecue in Golden Saturday, June 15th run by the Golden Rotary and Interact club.
