The city is working with the Barr Colony Heritage Society to hold their seventh annual Heritage Day.
The event brings in around 3,000 people each year to celebrate Lloydminster’s history. Recreation Programmer for Lloydminster Cultural and Science Centre Sarah Hockridge says the society strives to keep the city’s past alive.
“They work really hard on restoring the implements, the tractors and the old machinery. They like to provide information about these tractors, how they were used and when they were used by the pioneers when they came here in the early 1900’s.”
This year’s the festival will have a main stage for live entertainment, unlike previous years.
“We have a petting zoo, wagon rides and we’re also going to be displaying some classic cars. We’re bringing in Border King BBQ food truck so that folks don’t have to worry about planning their lunch out there will be food available for them,” says Hockridge
The farmers market will also be on site for people to shop and the whole event will kick off with a free pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. Heritage Day is on August 6 at the LCSC and Weaver Park starting at 10 a.m. running until 3 p.m. Admission is by donation.
