If you have grown up in Lacombe or the near surrounding area, I am sure Lacombe Days aren’t anything new to you. But to people coming in to Lacombe to make some memories and have a great weekend in this awesome little City, these people may be asking just that.
I don’t know if you will find something just like Lacombe Days, which is the exciting thing about the festival. Lacombe Days has grown up with the City of Lacombe, starting over 20 years ago. In fact, we are unable to pin down the exact year it started. It has been run by a boards of volunteers and like-minded people that have been passionate about celebrating our community. As our City grows, our small town attitude remains. And the things that were prided back then – community involvement, inclusion, family – are things that remain.
So what are Lacombe Days? To me, they are some of the first memories of dating my husband, who grew up and introduced me to Lacombe; having the fun, sweet memories of a new relationship celebrating summer fun. They are some of the first summer fun celebrations that we did as a new, young family, as we came to Lacombe to raise our family. They are the weekend we look forward to every summer to wave to the parade, run around town experiencing all the fun and unique ways the community comes out to show the pride in their City; where mom and dad can escape for a fun date night. They are where my children will continue to grow and make some of their favourite summer memories.
