Mem­bers of the com­mu­nity came out to cel­e­brate Canada’s 150th day of the 150th year with a fun-filled evening be­hind the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity (BCF) on May 30.

The event was funded by the Canada 150 com­mit­tee where a BBQ was avail­able with over 280 hot dogs sold.

“It was crazy,” said Ju­lia Field­ing, Canada 150 or­ga­nizer for the event. “They had to go re­plen­ish.”

The com­mu­nity was well in at­ten­dance for the games and so­cial chit-chat.

“It was so nice to see ev­ery­body out and en­joy­ing the day and just get­ting the com­mu­nity to­gether,” said Field­ing. “I thought it was won­der­ful.”

A high­light of the day was the tug of war as many com­pa­nies and other groups bat­tled it out to see who would reign cham­pion of the round.

“Ev­ery­body re­ally got into it and had lots of fun cheer­ing whether they were par­tic­i­pat­ing or not, there was lots of cheer­ing and ev­ery­thing.

“We’ll need to talk with the com­mit­tee and see how we will be mov­ing for­ward,” said Field­ing.

For now, the event was a fun ex­pe­ri­ence for folks from all around.

“We were just so pleased with how well it went,” said Field­ing. “Ev­ery­body par­tic­i­pated great, I saw lots of kids hav­ing sack races so it was good.”

The lo­cal RCMP teamed up to de­feat the Drumheller fire de­part­ment dur­ing the Canada 150 Pic­nic in the Park event on Terri Hux­ley May 30. Eight teams were able to sign up and take on the clas­sic game.
