As Lacombe Days fast approaches, the planning committee is busy bringing multiple events together for the four-day festival.
One of the biggest events being the Lacombe Days Parade, this year known as the iRecover Parade, happening on July 27th at 9:30 am.
“The parade is the biggest event of the whole festival, with nearly 8,000 people gathering to watch it,” says Rosanna Kerekes, Lacombe Days Event Coordinator. “It is truly the heart of the festival, with everyone – from businesses, organizations, non-profit groups, and individuals taking part in it.”
In the past, the Lacombe Days Parade has seen numerous bands, horse and carriages, dance groups, Shriners, and much more. It has become a tradition for many families, local and out of town.
This year, the Lacombe Days Committee is putting out a call.
“We are looking for any cultural, heritage, and ethnic groups to come forward and show us their pride in their diverse backgrounds and having those be a part of Lacombe. Lacombe is such a welcoming City and we want to showcase that and be proud of the different aspects that make up the community,” says Kerekes.
