The time capsule was put together because Main Street in Smithers, B.C., was being resurfaced. The burial coincided with a now defunct annual event, Midnight Madness, where residents were encouraged to dress-up in their pajamas and shop late on Main Street. The capsule was buried in the centre of the intersection of 2nd Avenue and Main Street.
