This year, the friendly town’s annual indoor rodeo and parade is on June 8-9th. Friday night dig into a beef on a bun supper at the community centre. The parade is Saturday at noon followed by the CARA amateur rodeo at the arena.

After all the bull riding, barrel racing and roping events, head back to the community centre for the cabaret – that’s fancy-talk for home-cooked Alberta beef dinner and live band. Park your RV for the weekend at the Eckville Lions campground or in the community centre parking lot.
