Heritage Day is August 5th, 2013! This annual Albertan holiday was created in 1974 by the Alberta Government in order to celebrate the cultural heritage of Alberta and all of its people. This day is celebrated each year on the first Monday in August.
Staff at the Museum and Archives are celebrating our local heritage in style, by offering three separate Historic Walking Tours for Heritage Day. You can learn so much by taking a stroll - things you may walk by everyday but never think twice about! Now, you get the chance to get some of those questions answered by joining us on one or all of these historic walks.
The schedule is as follows:
11am Learn about the Pioneers of the Peace with a tour of Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. Meet at the cemetery.
1:30pm The town’s built heritage will be the focus of a stroll along the historic streetscape of 102 Street. Meet at the Museum.
1 - 4pm Interpretive tours of the NAR Station - drop by anytime.
Dress for the weather as tours will go rain or shine! No pre-registration required.
