One big ‘Hoedown’ this weekend

The stage rocked all weekend with the sounds of music during the fifth annual Hoedown Jamboree in Triangle July 20-23, 2017. Look forward to more great music this coming weekend.

Some come to dance.

Some come to enjoy good food in a relaxed atmosphere.

But most still come to enjoy some terrific music, all performed by live bands, for hours on end.

The Triangle Pioneer Threshermans Association is hosting its sixth annual Hoedown Jamboree July 26-29 15 km west of High Prairie at junction of Highway 2 and Highway 2A.

The popular event provides a weekend of camping, fellowship, music and dancing. Music will be contributed by up to 30 amateur country bands and is primarily classic and old-time country, traditional fiddle, gospel and bluegrass.

Admission is $25 for the weekend or $10 per day.

There will be a food concession on site all day.

Money raised at the jamboree will be used to help build a new playground on the grounds.

Everyone is reminded this is a alcohol-free event.

For general information, call Fred at [780] 523-5152 or Louise at [780] 776-2296 or [780] 536-7497.
