This years Coal Miner Days starts off on Friday night with tons of great events for kids and adults.
Friday’s festivities will include a rock climbing wall, a ball hockey tournament, a slo-pitch tournament and MacCormack’s favourite, the fourth annual bed races.

Saturday starts off with the Lions pancake breakfast. There will also be the parade at 10:30 a.m, kids fest, beach volleyball, a demolition derby and in the evening for adults there will be a cabaret at the curling rink.
“A new event on Saturday will be the Dutch oven cook-off,” said MacCormack.
There will be more great events on Sunday including more ball hockey and the soapbox derby.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun and people should definitely come out,” she said.
