The Stettler Recreation Centre (SRC) was a busy place on Family Day.

A Family Day Winter Carnival was held at the SRC on Feb.20 which managed to draw a crowd from all over the region.

Festivities kicked off at 9 a.m. with a pancake breakfast, then carnival games opened at 11 a.m.

Also at 11 a.m., a magic show with Magicmon the magician took to the HUB stage.

The SRC put on a hot-dog lunch for attendees from noon until 2 p.m. Also opening at noon was a photo-booth which allowed the people attending everything to commemorate the occasion.

Starting at 1 p.m., the SRC open the doors to both its arenas and its pools, hosting shinny in one arena, a public skate — with a DJ — in the other, and a family swim.

All events during the day were free to attend, sponsored by a number of groups including the Town of Stettler, the Heartland Youth Centre, the Stettler Public Library, Stettler and District Family and Community Support Services, and the Government of Alberta.

There was a variety of kids’ games at the SRC during the Family Day Winter Carnival. (Krista Comeau photo)
