It was planes, trains and automobiles at the Lacombe Airport’s Fly-In Breakfast this morning. Many people came out to check out some local planes, to grab a bite to eat and even enjoy a charity helicopter ride in support of Lacombe’s Big Brothers Big Sisters. Meanwhile, the kids enjoyed a ride on the barrel train.
At Lacombe’s Agriculture Grounds you could check out some of Alberta’s strongest horses at the horse pull.
The Lacombe Memorial Centre was the place for kids with bouncy castles, and tons of carnival games to take part in.
President of the Lacombe Days Committee, Kristie Singer was very thankful to all her volunteers who showed a lot of commitment over the year to help put on all of the events.
“I just want to give a shout out to our committee members. We break for December and January, but we’re back at it in February. It takes this group of volunteers that shows up first once a month, than every two weeks, then every week leading up to the actual event,” said Singer.
Singer said Lacombe Days would be impossible without a good group of volunteers.
“Without volunteers on the committee, or the volunteers that put the events together—this is a community led initiative and we wouldn’t be able to do it without all of those volunteers,” said Singer.
