Westerner Days Are Here!

The sun is shinning, the weather is warm . . . We are finally in the summer season in Central Alberta. And that can only mean one thing, it’s time to dig out your cowboy boots and get your ride on down at Red Deer’s own Westerner Days! Every day this weekend, you can enjoy live entertainment, midway rides, delicious foods and on Saturday the 21st, a spectacular firework show!

I managed to get down to Westerner Park one night this week and I must say it was just as spectacular as promised! Despite dodging a little rain, I was able to enjoy a few rides (including my favorite, The Zipper!), tried my hands at a few of the carnival games (I didn’t win anything . . . But they were fun to play!), and, of course, chowed down on some delicious Westerner Days food (Cinnamon Sugar Donuts, anyone?). Even while it rained, I checked out what was happening inside the arena where I found a fabulous little market that has everything from fashion to home and yard decorum, hot tubs to home maintenance . . . And did I mention homemade fudge? Yum!! Finally, I HAD to go and visit the Discovery Barn. Listen, I know petting zoos are technically for kids, but there was no way I was going to turn down an opportunity to see baby goats! Soooo cute!

So, if you haven’t yet gotten down to Westerner Days, don’t wait much longer! Last day is Sunday the 22nd and you won’t want to miss out on this summer fun!
