2017 Fraser Festival-Wishbone Theatre's Hunter of Peace

October 21 & 22 2017 7:30 pm

Another in a series of the hugely popular stage and musical productions incorporating local legends and characters.

This performance will be at the Roundhouse Theatre in McBride Secondary School, 1300–2nd Avenue east of Main Street. Tickets - $20.00 at Home Essentials (Main Street, McBride) and at the door (open 7 pm, show starts at 7:30)

By Sharon Stearns, Hunter of Peace is a play inspired by the real-life adventures of explorer and botanist Mary Schaffer Warren, an American widow who led a dangerous expedition in search of the headwaters of the Athabaska River in 1907. Overcoming the limited expectations of women at this time, she journeyed on horseback through untouched wilderness–a thrilling adventure full of courage, romance, heartbreak and joy all set against a backdrop of the magnificent Rocky Mountains. Featuring some of Wishbone Theatre's favourite local actors and musicians.

Robson Valley TourismORIONID METEOR SHOWER: Earth is entering a stream of debris from Halley's Comet, source of the annual Orionid meteor swer. Just last night, NASA's network of all-sky meteor cameras detected 23 Orionid fireballs over the USA--a result of comet dust hitting the atmosphere at speeds exceeding 65 km/s (145,000 mph). Forecasters expect the shower to peak on Oct. 21-22 with as many as 25 meteors per hour. The best time to look is during the dark hours before dawn when the constellation Orion is high in the sky.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE LOVELY CLEAR SKY'S WE ARE HAVING RIGHT NOW

Rare close conjuction: During the first week of October is a rare
chance to see our planetary neighbours, Venus and Mars, pass very
close to each other, from our point of view, just half a moon width
apart on October 5. Venus is the planetary “star” of the show in the
predawn and dawn sky, the brightest object (apart from the moon),
rising in the east. It is easy to see low in the sky, rising by 5:30
am or so, depending on mountains, and easily visible until about 6:45
am. Reddish Mars is much fainter–it is further from the sun, smaller,
and the light we see it by has bounced off rusty soil, much darker
than Venus’ bright white cloud cover.

If you are looking while they first rise, you can see Mars easily.
Once dawn light starts making Mars harder to see, binoculars or a
telescope will greatly enhance the spectacle as the sky brightens
until it gets too bright for Mars around 6:45 am. Make the most of
seeing the close planetary dance, as they won’t be this close together
again in our sky until 2032 and 2040!

In reality they are far apart, faster moving Venus orbiting away from
Earth as it heads around behind the sun, while we are slowly catching
up with slower moving Mars. For some perspective on this, pick up a
free travel guide to McBride’s scale model solar system and find the
where the model orbits of Venus, Mars and Earth cross Main Street.
Drop by the Visitor Centre in McBride’s railway station any day of the
week to pick up your guide.

The Fiddlesticks and Strings Ensemble at McBride's E Free Church this evening. This is a Robson Valley Arts Council's Fraser Heritage Festival event. The finale of the concert featured guest oboe player John Van Leeuwen. Thank you Becky Hulka and all musicians. The performance was a delight.

Falls Colours herald 2017 Fraser Heritage Festival
The upper reaches of the Fraser River, the longest river running entirely within British Columbia, are the setting for upcoming events of the 2017 Fraser Heritage Festival.
Come and enjoy river rafting by Mount Robson September 29 (limited spaces), a free alphorn concert beside breathtaking Kinney Lake at the foot of Mount Robson (3 pm September 30), and a string ensemble in McBride (5 pm October 1).
Drama and musical theatre are in the works (13, 20, 21 October) with another in a series of inspired productions by Wishbone Theatre. Click this link to our calendars to see the latest information on these events and more.
Celebrating the geography, people and history of the upper Fraser River, the Heritage Festival is organized by the Robson Valley Arts and Culture Council.
Fall in the Robson Valley is shaping up to be a particularly colourful one. While we do not have the red trees of eastern Canada, the bright yellow aspens and birches and red shrubs are a very scenic backdrop to our hiking trails, great subjects for art and photography, and well worth a look, even if you are not able to visit on a day of scheduled events.F

Nancy TaylorKudos to Sheilagh Foster for weaving all these great arts and cultural events together every fall in the Robson Valley! When I participate in them I get a sense of our collective identity as a resident of the valley. I get a sense of belonging to this beautiful place. Thank you to Sheilagh and to all the talented folks that contribute to the Fraser Heritage Festival. 😊
