A wild weekend in Elkford

Elkford residents and out-of-towners braved the rainy weather to celebrate one of the first pioneers of the community, Wildcat Charlie Weigert.

The weekend's Wildcat Days family festival was jam-packed with a parade, fireworks, a craft and trade fair, volleyball tournament and live entertainment.

The celebrations kicked off Friday night with the opening ceremonies, the Elkford Secondary School's class of 2014 Grand March and an unforgettable concert by the African Children's Choir. The fun carried into Saturday with a pancake breakfast, the annual parade, and plenty of kid friendly activities.
