Why fight cabin fever when the the Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce and many other local vendors are attending the annual Edmonton Cottage Life and Cabin Show, April 22 to 24?

Chamber office administrator Chantelle Van Slyke says along with the chamber’s booth there will be many other resources from the lake area there and it will be a great opportunity for those looking to spruce up their cabin life or those just getting into it for the first time.

“It should be a really, really great show,” said Van Slyke.

“There will be anything and everything pertaining to cottage life and cabin living,” she added.

Van Slyke says the Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce’s booth will offer information on realtors in the Pigeon Lake area as well as a building company.

At the show in general, Van Slyke says it will offer a wide array or vendors including realtors, a rural internet provider, landscaping, possibly contractors, a home security company, home improvements and decorations. “I would imagine they would have patio sets and things like that.”

“Another company, they have trikes and stuff like that,” she added.

With Alberta’s economy in recession and uncertainty in the global community ‘staycations’ are gaining in popularity.

“A staycation is exactly that, when you stay close to home,” said Van Slyke. She says more and more people are choosing to find new and exciting things to do in their local area.

“It’s a good way to find ways to relax without spending money of a big ticket item,” said Van Slyke.

The Edmonton Cottage Life and Cabin Show will be held at the Northlands Edmonton Expo Centre.
