The city is preparing to take residents back in time in honour of Heritage Day. The 45th annual event will be celebrated in two places at Muskoseepi Park on August 5th.
“It’s an afternoon of entertainment and getting to meet new and exciting people and view different cultures and dances; things that maybe we wouldn’t see on a regular basis,” City Program and Events Manager Carla Wells said previously.
The Grande Prairie Museum and Heritage Village will be holding demonstrations, village interpreters, a petting zoo and games.
At the same time, people are invited to browse multicultural displays at the pavilion and amphitheatre. In the same location, there will also be dance performances, food trucks, drumming and a Kermesse, which is a cultural exchange where art, clothing and lifestyle items from multicultural backgrounds will be on display.
All events will run from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and are free and family-friendly but people are asked to leave pets at home.
