The 100th anniversary of Mount Revelstoke National Park will be celebrated at the Revelstoke Museum on Apr. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Revelstoke Museum & Archives and Parks Canada will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Mount Revelstoke National Park on Saturday, Apr. 26, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Mount Revelstoke was officially designated a national park on Apr. 28, 1914 — 100 years ago — after extensive lobbying by local residents who knew the beauty of the summit area and its tourism potential.

The anniversary celebration at the museum will start at 11:00 am with the opening of a new exhibit, followed by a cake cutting at noon. The street party includes music from the Bob Rogers Jazz Quartet, vintage cars, exhibitions and family activities.
