Lacombe's Canada Day 150 Celebration Bringing together our community at MEGlobal Athletic Park for a massive and free Canada 150th Birthday Party, featuring the home-coming concert of Gord Bamford and massive fireworks display!
The Lacombe Athletic Park Association has a mandate to provide and operate a premier facility for our community while providing subsidized fees to local groups and promoting commerce in the City and County. This spring the park is expanding the facilities with the construction of first class outdoor basketball courts. All this allows us to take on our next big event, a party to celebrate CANADA’S 150TH BIRTHDAY
With the support and guidance from the City of Lacombe, Lacombe & Regional Tourism, and Lacombe County, the L.A.P.A. is coordinating with local business groups, several local nonprofit groups, the Legion, the Central Alberta Youth Centre (Y-Turn), Lacombe Performing Arts Society, and many others to host what will be an amazing celebration of a magnitude that Lacombe has not seen before!
From 8:00 am at the Pancake Breakfast hosted by the North Lacombe Business Group until the sun goes down and the City presents an amazing Fireworks show, MEGlobal Athletic Park will offer free activities for people of all ages. Some of the events during the day include:
