Plenty of activities in Stettler for Canada Day

There was quite a few events for people to attend in Stettler on Canada Day.

Starting things up was a well attended pancake breakfast at the Town and Country museum. Staying at the museum, there were hamster balls, face painting, a bounce house, baloon animals,tractor rides, and a puppet show for children.

In the morning, over at West Stettler Park, was a Drum Circle led by Bob Richardson honouring those found in the unmarked graves found at former residential school sites.

Later on in the day, Stettler’s own Loose Change took to the stage in the Gazebo in West Stettler Park entertaining the crowd.

While the weather appeared questionable as to whether or not the fireworks would proceed, things ultimately held off long enough for the annual show to proceed concluding an activity packed day.
