Summer's End Harvest Festival
Summer's End Harvest Festival, Saturday, September 28, 2013
It’s the perfect formula for a new festival: Bid farewell to glorious summer, and usher in autumn’s splendour! Families, neighbours, friends near and far, everyone is invited to celebrate the change of seasons with an exciting new tradition at the Great Canadian Barn Dance:
The fun begins at 1:00 pm with a mouth-watering Ice Cream Social and a toe tapping, Jam Session. Guests of all ages are invited to participate in potato sack races, an old fashioned tug-of-war, a Scare Crow Beauty Pageant, and a Corn-Shucking Contest. Visit Granny’s (newly remodelled) gift shop and Tea House or simply grab a coffee and stroll through the bountiful isles of our very own Farmer’s Market. Take in a little Quilt Tying, or enjoy gorgeous scenery while you bump along on our famous Hay Rides. Get your fill of savoury beef at our Roast Beef Dinner Buffet and then prepare for the perfect end to a great season: Barn Dance! Featuring the ever-popular Barn Dance All Star Band.
“The Great Canadian Barn Dance is thrilled to introduce this extraordinary new tradition!” says Trevor Kunkel, resort owner and festival organizer. “With the help of our generous sponsors Travel Alberta, Waterton Lakes Lodge, and Lee Creek Campground, we’re planning a magnificent end to summer!”
