The weather didn’t disappoint for Aboriginal Day celebrations at Heritage Park June 21.

Visitors enjoyed free hotdogs, hamburgers, popcorn, cotton candy and cake during the event, and had a chance to watch chicken races.

Violet Prince was beading and mocassin making at the Men’s Cabin. If you stay long enough, Prince even shared stories that have been passed down generations.

There was also bannock making at the Hide Tanning Shed and drumming throughout the day.

Kids had face painting and a variety of bouncy houses to play in which were donated for the day by the Nak’azdli Health Centre.
