Fron­tier Days an­other huge hit

The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

“We try to ac­com­mo­date all au­di­ences, but we re­ally con­cen­trate on the fam­ily. And that’s why we went with the free fam­ily night. And the mo­tocross was a big hit, it was just some­thing dif­fer­ent. And there was a huge lineup of peo­ple get­ting in there, and the show was ex­cel­lent.”

“We tried to bring a lit­tle bit of the old and some of the new, and that’s what you’ve got to keep do­ing.”

She also saluted their vol­un­teers for con­tribut­ing to their suc­cess.

“A big tip of the hats to vol­un­teers. (TOP) The Mini Chuck Wagon Races were a new fea­ture as part of Fron­tier Days 2018. (RIGHT) The City of Swift Cur­rent Parks Play Pro­gram’s Kid­dies’ Day Pa­rade fea­tured a num­ber of cre­ative and colour­ful en­tries. (BOT­TOM LEFT) The mid­way pro­vided a va­ri­ety of fun rides. (BOT­TOM RIGHT) 2018 Hon­orary Pa­rade Mar­shal Betty Mcdougall and 2018 Fron­tier Days Am­bas­sador Adri­anna Simp­son con­ducted the cer­e­mo­nial burn­ing of the Fron­tier Days Brand dur­ing the kick off pan­cake break­fast on June 28. We can’t do this with­out the vol­un­teers. Well over 500 vol­un­teers and com­mu­nity groups help us out. We can’t do it with­out them.”

“Ev­ery lit­tle job helps be­cause it’s a big un­der­tak­ing to put that on for four days and put 25,000 to 26,000 peo­ple through the gates.”

She ex­tended a spe­cial thanks to the City of Swift Cur­rent Ki­netic Park crew, the Syr­ian fam­ily who served as the clean-up crew af­ter the fair, and Ser­vice­mas­ter for clean­ing the wash­rooms on the grounds.
