This town ain’t big enough for the two of us.

Well, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but either way, you’ll have a real good time at Heritage Park and their new Wild West Adventure this July! This year marks the 60th anniversary of Heritage Park, and you can help them celebrate with a brand-new experience, Showdown at Heritage Park: A Wild West Adventure.

Only on select days this July, the Showdown at Heritage Park is a family-friendly evening to remember. It’s perfect for a special occasion or as the grand finale after a terrific day spent exploring the Historical Village.

The whole shindig kicks off with a delicious cowboy buffet at the Wainwright Hotel. The doors open at 5 pm, and you can rustle up snacks and drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic) to purchase. Keep your head up and pay attention to Wild West characters that may be moseying through town. The buffet begins at 6 pm, with Alberta beef striploin, chicken drumsticks, and all the trimmings to fill you up.

The fat will be in the fire after you finish your grub. Step outside the Wainwright Hotel as a spectacular Wild West gunfight erupts on Main Street. Keep your wits about you and enjoy the Showdown at Heritage Park. At 8:15 pm, when the show ends and the dust settles, you can take pictures with the cast. And don’t forget to mosey on over to the Claresholm General Store; it’s open until 9 pm and you deserve a treat after that skirmish!
