Cutter parade coming

Snow Daze to be held in conjunction with Rimbey Sleigh, Wagon and Saddle Club cutter parade

Rimbey Sleigh, Wagon and Saddle Club will host their 29th annual cutter parade in conjunction with Rimbey Ag Society Snow Daze on Sat. Feb. 2.

This year, attendees are encouraged to bring an item for the Rimbey Food Bank. Food donations will be placed in a sled set up for that purpose.

President Doug Rogers said the sleigh, wagon and saddle club is pleased to be working with the Rimbey Ag Society for the third consecutive year.

He said, to his knowledge, Rimbey’s cutter parade is one of the longest running parades in the area.

The cutter parade will kick off at 12 p.m. and, as in the past, this event is sure to attract participants from far and wide as well as local enthusiasts.

In conjunction with the annual cutter parade, The Saddle Club will hold a silent and live auction. Funds from the live auction will go to Deserie Rieu, a Bentley horse trainer who was injured recently, and other monies will go to Kids Sports at the high school.

Rimbey Ag Society Snow Daze will begin at 9 a.m. with a Farmers Market. For the younger set, a Kid’s Corner and Petting Zoo will happen from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Ag Society will hold a chili cook off at 1 p.m.
