Nobleford’s Heritage Day celebration is being held this Saturday in the village, located in Lethbridge County.
“It starts with a free pancake breakfast and then we have a Candy Parade at 11 a.m.,” noted Melissa Jensen, secretary and treasurer of the Nobleford Heritage Society.
After that, Jensen added, there will be food trucks, as well as a barbecue fundraiser at the Nobleford Fire Department. Jensen said Dory and The Weathermen will be providing live entertainment at 1 p.m.
“That’s at the Community Complex,” she said, where most of the activities will be taking place this Saturday.
According to Jensen, the event will also feature horse rides, inflatable bouncy castles, a bake sale and much more.
“Everything finishes off with a community supper at 5 p.m. That’s cabbage rolls, perogies, sausage and salads,” she said.
Heritage Day in Nobleford has been held for over 10 years, Jensen said.
Next year, Nobleford celebrates its centennial and there will be a three-day celebratory event, which is already in the planning stages.
“Including fireworks,” she said.
Jensen pointed out the Nobleford Heritage Society consists of a bunch of volunteers, who come together to manage and plan the Heritage Day event.
“Of course, there are other societies in Nobleford that also donate, as well as the local businesses. It’s completely community-led — through donations and volunteers,” she said.
Jensen invites Nobleford residents to come out and join in on the fun and welcomes visitors from Lethbridge County and abroad. The Nobleford and Area Museum will also be open on Saturday and don’t forget to check out Nobleford’s spray park.
“Which definitely adds to the fun,” she said.
