Rock ‘n Rimbey is back

Fun for all in Rimbey coming soon

It’s back again and this year it promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Rock ‘n Rimbey!

The event, to be held Aug. 23 to 25, kicks off Friday with businesses dressing up, a street festival and a cruise to Eckville complete with treats and prizes.

When you are safely back in Rimbey there will be live bands at the Vault and Grand Hotel. Taxi service will be available.

Get off to a great start on Saturday morning with a delicious pancake breakfast to be held at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre from 9 a.m. until noon.

The show ‘n shine promises to be a spectacular show where owners can show off their own particular pride and joy, browse through the other vehicles on display and chat with the owners.

Registration for the show ‘n shine begins at 9 a.m. and includes a free photo opportunity. Awards begin at 3 p.m.

Don’t have a vehicle to show off – that’s okay. It’s free! Come take a look and join in the fun.

Want to check out Rimbey?

Take the free shuttle and have fun. In the morning you can explore the Farmers Market and tour the community museums, which include a fantastic truck museum. In the afternoon town tours will be available.

Rock ’n Rimbey has something for the everyone. As well as great entertainment for the adults there will be face painting, balloons, mascot and archery tag.

There is free ‘no service’ camping space on the grass if you are staying for the car show and/or supper and dance.

The supper and dance promises to be a fun and exciting time. It is a good idea to get tickets early, as they will go fast. Meals will be pre-ordered. Tickets are available at Stationary Stories and Sound, from Terry at 403-358-8141 or order online at www.rocknrimbey.com

The live band ‘Walk’n On Sunshine’ will entertain with rock ’n roll from the ‘50s and ‘60s and Top 40 hits. Taxi service from the dance is available.

Enjoy the all weekend ball tournament and/or the pool tournament going on at the historical Grand Hotel on Sunday or take in the street car drag races at our very own Central Alberta Raceways on Sunday.

“Rock ’n Rimbey has been a real positive for the community and the future of the event depends on your support, said Terry VonHollen, one of the organizers. “Get your supper and dance tickets now and keep the tradition alive.”

Book early for hotel or motel rooms, as they will fill up fast. For more information and preregistration visit HYPERLINK “http://www.rocknrimbey.com” www.rocknrimbey.com
