A big celebration is set for the beautiful community of Maple Creek this weekend as they get ready for the 10th annual Heritage Festival, which celebrates the unique designation of the community's historic downtown core as a municipal heritage district.
The two-day event on Friday and Saturday is packed full of special events that include farmers markets and sidewalk sales, art showings, film screenings, and special performances. The festival also includes the 100th anniversary celebration of the RM of Maple Creek, a pancake breakfast, the Cowtown Parade on Saturday, and the Maple Creek Ranch Rodeo and bronc riding at the High Chaparral Arena.
Colin talked with Royce Pettyjohn, Manager of Community and Economic Development for the Town of Maple Creek, about the weekend's activities.
Magic 97 will also be live on location from the Heritage Festival for a salute to Maple Creek from 8:30am to 12:30pm!
