Canada Day here in Drumheller is known for some fun entertainment, but this year will be extraordinary.

There's usually a few different bouncy castles set up, but Drumheller hasn't seen some of the ones being brought in for this year.

"We will have the Jurassic bouncy House for the little kids. We also will have something called a 5-in-1 Combo, so it's a house you go in and you can do five different things inside and we will also have a rope wall and slide for the younger kids," stated Kim Masson, Coordinator of Recreation Programs at the BCF.

Not only will there be bouncy houses for the younger kinds, but for teens and adults as well.

"As we get into the older kids, youth and even adults, we have a bungee run coming. That's where you get in the harness of some sorts and you try to run to the end and Velcro the wall before it tugs you back," Masson outlined. "We have a zorb ball collision course. It's about 100 feet long, you get inside this ball and you try to roll yourself to the end against someone else. If you bonk, it doesn't matter because you're inside this big ball."

"The last one we have for the older ones is a 95 foot Radical Run, which is an obstacle course. Those are all new coming and it will be from 12:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Canada Day."

Canada's 150th celebration starts at 7:00 a.m. with the Family Fun events starting at noon. A schedule can be found through this link.
