The West Coast Lumberjack Show is a crowd pleaser. This talented group of lumberjacks will be showcasing some of their amazing skills.

Kids under the age of 12 are in for a treat; they can try their hand at fishing. The Kids Fishing Pond is a catch and release program that gives kids the opportunity to catch a real trout. For many this is an opportunity to give fishing a try, which may foster a life long passion for the sport. All the proceeds from the Fishing Pond benefit the Sarcee and Calgary Fish and Game Associations.
