    PeaceFest is an annual music festival and fair held in Peace River, Alberta that started in 1997 after horrible floods devastated the town. Originally called "We're Back", this festival was created to let Albertans know that Peace River was not ruined by the flood but was rebuilding and coming back better and stronger than ever.

    Come to Lac La Biche for some great entertainment during the Hylo/Venice Harvest Days. The festival centres around the horticultural show which features hundreds of plants and flowers. There will be a parade, but the great thing about small-town parades, is that anyone can join. Make a float, decorate your bike, wagon or quad.

    This event is too good to pass up, not only because there’s so much going on, but also because it is free admission into the grounds. You don’t get that in the big city.
