|Event||Binder Twine Festival|
|Date||September 6, 2014|
|Time||9:30 am to 6:30 pm|
|Location||The Entire Village|
The Binder Twine Festival is an annual festival that is held the first Saturday after Labour Day. In the late 1800s farmers would come to the community to acquire twine so they could bind sheaves of wheat. Local resident Charlie Shaw would offer food and entertainment to the farmers, unknowingly starting a tradition that would continue year after year. Entirely organized and operated by volunteers, Binder Twine has become a successful community event and has resulted in new town signage and the creation of Binder Twine Park.

The Holiday Train Program began in 1999 with a handful of communities and a few lights on a freight train. Today, with its hundreds of thousands of festive lights and a live show featuring well known performers, it’s one of Canadian Pacific’s main ambassadors in working with communities in Canada and the United States and is the only fundraiser of its kind for food banks in North America.
