Parade day and the start of Westerner Days! Bring on the Pancakes & Chili, Midway and Munchies.
Everyone seems to have their personal favourites on parade day, whetehr it's horses, the shriners on their little cars, the bands, the pipers or the cars. The pararde is a hit for the whole family.
I thought this guy was cool. Not very seasonal but looks like fun.
Is it more than an excuse to wear blue jeans to work? Yes it is. It's Central Alberta's largest celebration. The Westerner park expects close to 100,000 to attend this years festivities and take in the chuck wagons, the midway, the shows and family fun. See you on the grounds, I'll be helping to sell Kinette tickets on Thursday (You could win a Sea-Doo & Trailer).
