STORY BY KELCI NICODEMUS

A popular event for the residents of High River year after year is the community’s Guy Weadick Days and the event, which is fit for any cowboy or cowgirl, is back for another year of celebration in 2016.

Guy Weadick Days, named after local pioneer Guy Weadick, will run from June 23 to 26 this year with events for community members of all ages. Every day from Thursday to Saturday, residents and those from surrounding areas can experience the excitement of the rodeo and chuckwagon races. Cheering and stomping will be loud and energetic for all to hear.

As an official kick-off to summer, Guy Weadick Days is a great time to let your hair down, have a good time and relax as residents prepare for
