Crazy Daze events cookin’ in Stettler

Barrels of business bargains and fun are expected to be part of festivities when Crazy Daze returns to downtown Stettler

Barrels of business bargains and fun are expected to be part of festivities when Crazy Daze returns to downtown Stettler this week and next.

“We invite everyone to come downtown for plenty of good bargains and sales, while the kids have fun at the carnival,” said Andrea Hatch, the president of the Stettler Downtown Business Association.

“Many businesses will actually start their spring sales this weekend and continue to the following Saturday.”

This Friday, a pancake breakfast outside the Stettler Independent office runs from 8 to 10 a.m.

A full-scale midway with 28 rides for all ages is set for the agricultural grounds next Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 to 10 p.m.

“We strongly encourage businesses that this is a perfect time to have sidewalk sales and we urge people to come downtown to see what businesses offer,” Hatch said.

Over the decades, Crazy Daze has featured people dressed in costumes, musical entertainment, fundraising food concessions, and fun and games for all ages, including bed races down Main Street.

For many years, the midway was located on Main Street, which several business owners said distracted from the downtown businesses.
