Rob Lennard, widely known as “Alberta’s History Wrangler,” wants you to join him in celebrating Alberta’s 111th birthday tomorrow (September 1)! No need to bring gifts to this party, and you’ll still get to enjoy cake and entertainment! Thus far, Alberta’s birthday has only been celebrated in 2005 for the centennial and last year at the Bow Valley Ranch. Most Alberta residents have forgotten what year Alberta became a province. The History Wrangler is on a mission to change that.
At this birthday party, you’ll get to relive history by watching a reenactment of original inauguration speeches from 1905. Rob’s Dusty Saddle Gang Band will also be performing, and there will be cake for all to enjoy, too. An unofficial birthday flag (which received the most votes of a multitude of flags designs that Alberta students drew) will be raised at the party.
The celebration wraps up the History Wrangler’s 2016 tour and will be held at Calgary’s historic Bow Valley Ranch. The event is free and takes place from 5 PM – 8 PM.
