One thing we love about Red Deer, is how great our community comes together to celebrate and support one another. One of these celebrations is Westerner Days and with us gearing up for day two we wanted to showcase some of the highlights of this year. So, let’s all celebrate our inner westerner and check out these five things at the 125th anniversary of Westerner Days.
