Pancake breakfast, food, fun, games and touring the exhibits will all be free and open to the public at Weaver Park for Heritage Day on August 1st.
City staff are inviting everyone to be part of the fun from 8:30 a.m. right down to the tractor parade at 2 p.m.
Beth Bernard, the recreation programmer for events with the Lloydminster Museum and Archives says breakfast serves off until 10 a.m. when the day’s events will roll out which includes numerous family activities, crafts and live entertainment.
“We have Hula Hoop Circus doing some roving shows for us, some balloon twisting, candle making in the log cabin. People will be able to tour through Rendell House. There will be blacksmithing and making and selling ice cream. And then some food vendors and market vendors.”
The Heritage Society will also have some demonstrations as well, added Bernard.
Restored buildings like Rendell House which was the first timber-framed house in the area
dates back to 1903. The events programmer shared the importance of connecting with the early pioneer spirit of Lloydminster.
“This event looks back on things that would have happened 100-years ago and how the pioneers would have worked some of the old farm equipment. This event in particular is about celebrating the heritage behind Lloydminster and how it was developed.”
Heritage day is hosted by the Barr Colony Heritage Society, Richard Larsen Barr Colony Foundation and the Lloydminster Museum & Archives.
