Grande Cache is turning 50 this year. People in the newly named Hamlet in the MD of Greenview have a full schedule of events planned for this July long weekend.
The weekend kicks off on June 28th with a wine and cheese party at the Grande Cache Arena. The following day there will be a community breakfast, a church service and a BBQ lunch. There will also be open houses at Sheldon Coates Elementary, Summitview Middle School and Grande Cache High School.
The event wraps up on June 30th with a pancake breakfast, a parade, a miners dedication and a sorority gathering. The whole weekend will then end with a fireworks show.
Throughout the weekend, there will also be free swimming at the Aquatic Centre, free tours at the Grande Cache Tourism Centre, a community market, and the cemetery will be open for visits.
More events and details are expected to be released closer to the date. Families can RSVP to attend the anniversary celebrations by emailing [email protected]
