  • Whoop Up Days

    Lethbridge, AB – With autumn lingering on the horizon, Whoop-Up Days in Lethbridge is the perfect way to end the summer.

  • Brooks Faire

    All around me there’s medieval mayhem and much merriment. Standing at the tournament ring, fighters head to toe in steel armour try to knock each other down to the ground. To the backdrop of the baritone sounds of drums, the clashing swords ring out somewhere behind me. Costumed characters walk by as I hear the herald calling out for the crowd to gather in the tournament ring with the king and queen. It’s time for the height of medieval entertainment – the jousting tournament.

  • The last time I held a bow and arrow, I was a kid. The bow was a tree branch, the bow string was just that, string, and the arrow was a semi-straight stick.
