Showcasing summer at Summer Showcase in Wetaskiwin

The Chamber of Commerce claimed, “A carnival atmosphere will electrify the city with our Wetaskiwin Summer Festival.”

HORSIN’ AROUND – Everyone gathered in Wetaskiwin Saturday

The Wetaskiwin and District Chamber of Commerce  claimed, “A carnival atmosphere will electrify the city with our Wetaskiwin Summer Festival.”  and they delivered. Thousands of people moved throughout Wetaskiwin July 10 to July 12 trying to take in the multitude of attractions. As one gentleman commented, “There is something for everyone here and they have kept the prices reasonable and even have free stuff for those who don’t have a lot of money. They can still enjoy this event.” His comment pretty much sums up Summer Showcase 2015.

On Friday July 10 the concert in the Drill Hall featured local entertainer Randy Bailer and Punch Drunk Cabaret and Canadian rock icon Kim Mitchell.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 10 to July 12, people of all ages wound their way down Main Street from 53 Street to 50 Street to enjoy the rides, games and typical midway food. Friday evening was a special treat for parents with young children as they could purchase a wristband enabling unlimited rides for an affordable $30.

On Saturday, July 11 the parade was held. On July 11, festivities kicked-off at 11 a.m. with a “fly-over the water tower” as the official start to the parade. People lined the  parade route beginning  on Main Street (55 Street) and a hop skip and jump one block north and back onto Main Street ending at 47 Street.

On Saturday July 11 SunShine Fiesta In The Park (Jubilee Park) was buzzing with activity from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a vendor marketplace in outdoor pavilions enhanced with live entertainment and many other family-friendly activities throughout the day.
