Teddy Bear Picnic Winners

 Visitors to Rotary Park were treated on Saturday August 23rd, to the sight of many well-dressed bears  picnicing for all to see. Several of these character bears have been donated  to Cranbrook and District Arts Council for silent auction.  The Art in the Park celebration was the culmination of a summer long Teddy Bear scavenger hunt involving many different Cranbrook businesses as well as a competition for the best-dressed bears. The bears for sale are on display at the Arts Council Gallery at 135 Tenth Av S. and will go to the final bidder on September 30th.  All proceeds will go towards Cranbrook and District Arts Council Projects.

Cranbrook and District Arts Council wishes to thank all those businesses who participated, Spring Honda for their sponsorship, Summer Sounds and their sponsors, the face painters and many others who contributed and volunteered for this fun day.
