The May long weekend may be the beginning of summer holidays for many, but in Sicamous things really heat up the weekend after.

Things get going on Friday, May 25th with the return of the Annual Spring Fling Home and Leisure Show at the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre. This free event, put on by Donna Mounce, Dina Spelay  and Michelle Wolff, is in its seventh year, and is a showcase for Shuswap businesses (including home-based), organizations, crafters and artisans.  It runs Friday evening from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, May 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information or to book a table, call 250-836-2948, or visit While the Spring Fling is going on inside the arena, the Finlayson Park ball diamonds outside will be bustling with the Sicamous Ladies A Fastball Tournament. There will be 16 teams involved in the two-day tourney, which begins 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. A Bavarian-style beer garden will be held in the ball park on the Saturday until 3 p.m.

Also on Saturday, Sicamous will get a taste of the upcoming Sturgis North Motorcycle Rally, Trade Show and Music Festival with a motorcycle show and shine being held at Joe Schmucks from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Afterwards, it’s back to the rec centre for a concert/dance featuring live music from rockers Stampede Queen and James Shephard and the Bare Bones. Tickets are $20 plus HST, and are available at the Sicamous & District Chamber of Commerce at 250-836-0002. No minors will be allowed at this event.

Sunday morning kicks off with a pancake breakfast back at Joe Schmucks. The ball tourney continues throughout the day over at Finlayson, with the Bavarian garden re-opening for thirsty ball fans, attendees, etc.

June is already shaping up to be an equally busy month with the return of the boat show, June 16/17, a Ladies C/D Fastball tourney, June 23/24, and the classic car show and shine at Finlayson Park on June 30, with the Louisiana Hayride returning that evening.
