The Spring Trade Show crammed crowds and 185 vendors into the Multiplex this Saturday.
While the fair offered up free bouquets for Mother’s Day, businesses, non-profits and governmental organizations shared their services with visitors perusing the exhibitions. The event featured a range of family-friendly entertainment, complete with a boat show and volunteers dressed as Disney characters walking the Multiplex.
Attendees could also enter a number of giveaways, including a passport program that required visiting 15 booths for a chance to win a round-trip flight to Edmonton. Meanwhile, locals had the opportunity to learn about the services and organizations in their community.
