It's been long anticipated and Drumheller's Boogie in the Badlands is right around the corner.

"I'm getting emails and phone calls. It's happening, it's gathering attention and away we go from there," stated event organizer, Mike Todor.

"We're just hoping for a good showing. If we can match last year's numbers then great, but if we can beat them then it's even better," he noted.

The event will be held in downtown Drumheller again, taking up two full blocks.

"We're working on Centre Street all the way from the Recovery down to Town Hall. We filled them up pretty good last year, I think we're going to do it again," Todor explained.

So, what's the admission cost?

"$10 to get in and you get a chance to win a prize (and) you get a participation item for your car or you can always take it home for your fridge," outlined Todor.

It's extremely important for those who are attending to not touch someone's car in case of damage.

"You can either bring your car down, set up a lawn chair and spend the day by your car, or you can trust that people will have good manners and wander around."

Boogie in the Badlands takes place May 27, 2017.
