It was another day of celebrating the City in Lacombe. Saturday kicked off bright and early with the annual Lacombe Days Parade. Hundreds of people lined the streets in anticipation of seeing Lacombe’s most vibrant businesses and organization march the streets.
Vintage cars and machinery, marching bands, first responders, and several marching bands took part in the parade.
Following the parade, Lacombe residents took in the Show and Shine, the Market at the Lacombe Memorial Centre, and the Book Sale at the Mary C. Moore Library.
The Parkland Regional Library was also giving away free library memberships at their barbeque and magic show.
Outside of the Lacombe Memorial Centre, families constructed bird houses with Art in the Park and there was a painting competition hosted by the Lacombe’s Art guild.
Lacombe’s historical sites continued to host their tours and demos. Over Friday and Saturday, the Lacombe and District Historical Society hosted over 500 people.
Meanwhile at the Lacombe’s Fire Station, people could grab a free burger test their skills as a fire fighter.
At the Gary Moe Autogroup Sportsplex, there was several bouncy castles and a petting zoo at the Kids Coral. At the Curling rink you could also take in the Cold Blooded Cornhole provincials.
There was also some magic in Lacombe under the big tent for Dr. Von hooligans Family Extravaganza.
Into the evening, the weather began to dampen causing the cancellation of night’s entertainment but the fireworks were still a go even in the rain.
