Those Were the Days – 50th Anniversary

August 17, 2019 - August 18, 2019, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm | North Battleford

Take a stroll down memory lane! Those Were the Days offers something for the whole family! Savour the sweet smell of threshed oats in the field as the threshers go about their work. Watch and feel the powerful vintage steam tractors at the daily Parade of Power where vintage farm machines huff and puff their way around the Heritage Village. Take a ride in a vintage 1925 McLaughlin, 1929 Buick or a 1928 firetruck, or enjoy the bump and jostle of a horse-drawn wagon ride. Visit with the friendly volunteers around the Heritage Village. Don’t miss Dr. Von Houligan’s Carnival of Calamities daily at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. Check out his latest video!

For the youngsters there will be a petting zoo, face painting, jungle gyms, scavenger hunts, sack and three-legged races. Roll up your sleeves and hammer some nails, or race against the clock to twist a nut onto a bolt at the Pioneer Competitions.
