Leslieville Antique Days returns for 41st year

On July 30 and 31, the Leslieville Antique and Model Club will host the 41st annual Leslieville Antique Days.

Just two miles east and a quarter mile south of Leslieville Albertans have the opportunity to go back in time.

On July 30 and 31, the Leslieville Antique and Model Club will host the 41st annual Leslieville Antique Days, which in the past on a warm weekend has attracted over 3,000 people,according to event organizer Vern Mosset.

“Unfortunately we kind of dropped the ball, but last year was the 40th year,” he said, referring to the missed opportunity last year to celebrate the milestone.

The two-day event is an inexpensive event that allows participants to see how life was years ago at the turn of the century, according to Mosset, and is pretty cheap entertainment since itis $5 per person, per day.

Both days will start off with a pancake breakfast put on by the club from 7 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., followed by a parade both days at 11:30 a.m. Vendors will start at 11 a.m. both days andrun until 3 p.m., followed by suppers at the Leslieville Community Centre, featuring live entertainment.

The antique show will feature antique tractors and cars, tractor pulls, threshing, lumber milling along with shingle and lathe making. For younger spectators, there will be homemadecinnamon buns, a petting zoo and Royal Scott Train rides. You can also visit the Horberg train station, the mercantile store, the school, church, Ridge House and Lane House.

For more information, you can contact Vern Mossett at 403 896 7337.

Mossett added that people are more than welcome to come see him on his tractor!
