Countdown to the 2017 Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival is on

The countdown to the 2017 Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival (Nov. 18-19) is on.

November, in the Fraser Valley, marks the end of the life-cycle for many spawning salmon in the Harrison River. It also marks the beginning of the return of thousands of Bald Eagles to feast on their remains.

The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival, now in its 22nd year, celebrates this incredible natural phenomenon by hosting two days of fun, educational and free activities throughout the festival region ( Mission to Harrison Mills) .

The Mission Visitor Information Centre is the most western site located on the Scenic 7 highway, traveling east the next festival site is Inch Creek Hatchery. Three land viewing sites are ready to welcome guests along Morris Valley Rd, and the “Eagle Safari’s” by boat will be running three tours a day.

Two additional activity sites (including Kilby Historic Site) will offer things to see and do with the unifying theme of nature and the environment.

The popular exhibitor’s fair, with a ton of festival souvenirs, has relocated to the Harrison Mills Hall this year, right in the heart of the event.
