Longview Hosts Annual Longstock!

On my way back to High River, I stopped in at Longstock in Longview! 

Longstock presented an awesome lineup of bands from every genre of music, and I loved it! I had the opportunity to speak with Eva Levesque who has been the event organizer for the past 10 years, who has decided to retire after this year. She will continue to attend Longstock and perform with her band "The Travelling Mabels". 

They also had an art gallery, tradeshow, and food of course!

Mark your calendars for next year's Longstock!

Old Time Ranch Rodeo at Bar U Ranch!

Sunday afternoon I visited my favourite place... Bar U Ranch!

Bar U Ranch hosted their annual Old Time Ranch Rodeo!

I've never experienced a rodeo like this. I'm used to the barrel racing, bull riding, and chuckwagons! Here I got to see team branding, team sorting, team doctoring, cow milking, and broke horse race! I loved it!

There is always so much to do over at Bar U Ranch. They also had live entrtainment on the Calgary Stampede commuity stage, a tradeshow, a concession with great food, and history over at the campfire! 

I always look forward to Bar U Ranch events!

Okotoks Show n' Shine!

On Sunday I hung out on Elizabeth Street for the Okotoks Show n Shine! 

There was so much going on, way more than a car show. I couldn't believe how many people crowded the streets. Not only people but dogs too!

There were chances to enter and win great prizes, enjoy live entertainment, and grab a bite to eat from the food trucks! Except I took advantage of the fact Fountain Tire was giving away free hotdogs...

I had tons of fun hanging out at the Show n' Shine, along with my friend Julia Wolf, from the The Eagle!

Aspen Crossing SAMF!

What a great weekend for a music festival!

Aspen Crossing hosted the Southern Alberta Music Festival, Friday to Saturday.

They had a great lineup of artists, one I really enjoyed, the Jack Butler Society who performed originals and covers of great musicians such as Johnny Cash.

Not only could you enjoy the entertainment, but they also had vendors surrounding the area.

This event was hosted by STARS Ambulance.

Claresholm BMO BBQ and Parade!

What a great community Claresholm is. 

I had the privelage to spend some time in Claresholm this weekend!

First stop was the BMO BBQ! This is the 15th year BMO has hosted the Fair Days BBQ. All funds went towards the Claresolm Fire Department. Not only could you purchase a burger and pop, but you could get your face painted, or get a balloon animal from Rory Gaudon!

It was such a pleasure to meet Rory. Rory is a recent retired entertainer who has travelled all over Alberta, and now volunteers his time to entertain families and educate children. He can do it all! Including balloon magic, musiciuan, poet, comedian and will attend any event. his main purpose is to educate through story telling. 

I also had the chance to meet Betty Fieguth who is running for Claresholm mayor! She was a wonderful, humble lady who explains that Claresholm is a great community and "is a hidden treasure". She would have my vote! 

I then was in the parade Saturday morning at 11am! It was great to cruise through the town and see smiling faces down the streets of Claresholm.

Fair Days has fun event for you and the family all weekend long!

Nanton Round Up Days!

Saturday afternoon, I headed over to Nanton for Round Up Days!

I made a pit stop at the farmer's market beside the United Church where you could find so many vendors, with a lot to sell! You could grab your fresh produce and baking, or some household crafted items!

I then went over to the Bomber Command Museum to check out the main attraction, and they had a pin up girl contest to start things off at 1:00!

Strathmore Stampede and Parade!

Strathmore Stampede and Heritage Days is the place to be for the long weekend!

I had so much fun hanging out at the grounds for Heritage Days where there was so much going on!

To start off I went to the trade show, where surprisingly I didn't spend all my money. Then I went over to check out the live entertainment with the "Little Buckaroos" I absolutely loved it. The rodeo then started at 1:00, where I hung out with some great people from Wildflower Ranch!

There is so much to do at the Strathmore Stampede! They also had food trucks, TONS of activities for the family, and you could buy some stampede apparel!
