A huge thank you to Geoff Parlby for providing his car again this year for the parade. Our theme was “150 years celebrating Irene Parlby”. It was a great day for a parade!

 

 

Can you help us?

This item was brought into our Museum recently, unsure of what it may actually be. We have had a suggestion that it may be a Buffalo Calling Stone, if anyone knows what this is, and could help us out, that would be greatly appreciated!

Past Parade Articles from “The Lakesider”

In Alix, Alberta on August 14, 2018 at 4:36 PM

With the Alix Days, Annual Parade and 4th Annual Rodeo coming up, (August 18th, and 19th!), we thought we would share articles from past parades and fair days in 1996 & 1997, from the town’s former paper, The Lakesider. These articles share the types of competitions that were held 20+ years ago, and some of the names of winners, that you may just remember!
