Canada Day: Alberta style!
Canada is turning 149 years old in 2016, and we are celebrating the occasion by bringing you a fun-filled day, Alberta style! We will have four performance areas to entertain one and all with live acts to keep you dancing. There will be roving performers, arts and crafts for the kids and food vendors.
Clan MacNaughton Pipe Band
The Clan MacNaughton Pipe Band was formed in 1972 and adopted the MacNaughton name and tartan because of the clan affiliation of the band's first pipe major. The band operated as a teaching band until 1987, when it changed to a noncompetition format, concentrating on public and private performances, parades and Remembrance Day ceremonies.
