    Every once and a while we get to spend time with SuperHeroes, you know those people who leave you standing taller and eyes more wide open.  Fernie, British Columbia has a superhero and his name is Griz.  Fernie, named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of North America’s top party towns, hosts a festival every year in honour of their superhero.  That festival is called Griz Days, and the event is legendary.
