BIG VALLEY BULLETIN — Big Valley has taken up the challenge and is taking part in the Pinkest Little Town in the West contest in support of breast cancer research. The village residents and businesses have busy “pinkying up” and fundraising for a while now. At the Fireman’s Ball Tournament earlier this month, a total of $700 was raised for the cause with their “pink lemonade” stand. With various events, including the Wild Pink Yonder ride, scheduled around the village this week, we hope everyone will think pink and come out and join us.

Alberta Prairie’s Teddy Bear Special will be in Big Valley on Thursday, Aug. 25 from 12:40 p.m. until 3 p.m. Children 10 and under, accompanied by an adult, will enjoy a teddy bear ride for free. Children are invited to join in a teddy bear promenade just before departure on the return trip. There will be clowns and magicians on board the train to entertain the kids. Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the village and welcome the train as it arrives decked out in its pink finery to raise money for breast cancer.

The Big Valley Library is hosting the “Pinkest Little Carnival” in conjunction with the Pinkest Little Town Contest and the Teddy Bear Special on Thursday, Aug. 25 from 12 noon until 3 p.m. You will find the carnival tent set up on the green across from McAlister’s Museum. All children are invited to come and join in the fun carnival games, treats and prizes.

The Big Valley Art Club will be hosting the Wild Pink Yonder Ride for breast cancer breakfast and fundraiser on Friday, Aug. 26 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Big Valley Arena. Everyone is welcome.

Come check out the grand reopening of the Big Valley Amphitheatre this weekend. Big Valley is hosting an outdoor concert with “Me & the Mrs.” at our amphitheatre on Railway Avenue on Saturday, Aug. 27 beginning at 7 p.m. In case of inclement weather, the drop-in centre is the backup venue. There are posters up around town and also in surrounding municipalities inviting folks to come and join us for an evening’s good entertainment. Tickets are available at the village office, Granny’s Fudge Factory, All That Buzz, Outriders’ Inn, and the ATB. Come out and enjoy the evening of Aug. 27 with us. Bring your own cushion, maybe a blanket and some bug spray.
