PHOTOS: Midway brings thrills to Sylvan Lake

The Midway ran over the Labour Day weekend in Sylvan Lake

The midway returned to Sylvan Lake over the September-long weekend, Aug. 30 to Sept. 3, bringing with it cheers and thrills.

The public parking lot at Centennial Street and 50 Avenue was full of activity over the weekend as rides for all ages, games and food too over.

Children of all ages enjoyed the rides and filled up of the fair-favourite, mini donuts.

Many families took advantage of the fair and spent the day together taking in the rides and playing the different games that lined the parking lot.

 

The Super Slide often had a line-up, as many young guests at the midway, along with their parents, took the opportunity to whip down the extra long slide.
