Free admission to Wetaskiwin trade show this weekend

Home, Garden and Business Expo at Drill Hall Friday and Saturday

The Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce will have lots of attractions at their Home

One of the biggest business events of the year is coming up this weekend, and it’s free of charge.

The Wetaskiwin Regional Chamber of Commerce Home, Garden and Business Expo will be held in Wetaskiwin’s Drill Hall on Friday and Saturday and admission is free.

The event is family friendly and will offer many local vendors with booths showing the many products and services available within Wetaskiwin’s burgeoning business community.

Lots of special events are planned too, including all-day face-painting both days. Kids will be excited to know many different bouncy castles will be available, some for toddlers, some for older kids.

On Friday, the trade fair is open from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. A custom balloon-tier will perform from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Even better, kids will have a chance to meet a real superhero from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Party King from Millet, a chamber member, will be helping out.

On Saturday the trade fair runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All-day face-painting and bouncy castles will be available and the balloon twister will return Saturday from 12 noon to 3 p.m. Kids will also enjoy a princess visit from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Outside the Drill Hall, the Glens Grill will be barbecuing on the spot and the indoor concession will be offering mini-donuts, slushies and cotton candy.

McLean’s Meats will have sample meats available and Joe Letourneau will be giving away popcorn. Both the City of Wetaskiwin and County of Wetaskiwin will have booths too.

The chamber will also be drawing two $250 gift cards as door prizes (winners will be notified by phone next week)

The chamber staff estimate there should be at least 50 booths featuring over 37 businesses and organizations and admission is free.
