Visitors to Grande Prairie are in for a treat this weekend as the 2015 Drag Wars and Car Show rolls onto the scene at the Grande Prairie Airport. Happening August 15 and 16, you can check out drag racers from all across Canada come to burn rubber on the tarmac, and classic car owners show off their four-wheeled babies. This annual event always draws a crowd, so remember your sunscreen and have a blast watching the spin-outs! The airport is less than 10 minutes from the front doors of the Paradise Inn & Conference Centre.
See how things were done the old fashioned way! Before modern machinery made our lives a heck of a lot easier, we used to use pure braun to get things accomplished. With live music, a craft show and sale, horse-drawn wagon rides and lard rendering, you can also see some cross-cut log sawing and balance on a tractor teeter totter. The fun goes down from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 30 at the South Peace Centennial Museum is about a half hour’s drive from our hotel.
