"...There's a lot of hours that go into organizing and hosting such an event. It went over so good that we decided to give it another go this year."

Last year, Drumheller and the surrounding area were treated to a powwow, Dancing with the Dinosaurs. Mike and Lynn Fabrick, the organizers of the powwow, are gearing up and getting ready for another successful year putting on Dancing with the Dinosaurs.

Canada Day will mark the second time this themed event comes to the town of Drumheller and Mike Fabrick is getting more and more excited.

"The powwow (last year) went over quite well," Fabrick recalled. "We had over 100 dancers and six drum groups. It was well attended by the community."

The powwow did so well, the Fabrick's were presented with an award.

"Hosting a powwow put us in high regards for an arts and culture award, here in town," said Fabrick. "It was a great honor to receive that award. It was nice getting some recognition for all the hard work we've put in. There's a lot of hours that go into organizing and hosting such an event. It went over so good that we decided to give it another go this year."

The event falls on July 1, Canada Day.

"It is going to be over two days(this year). June 30 well be the artisans fair and then the powwow, the dance competitions, will be on July 1st." Fabrick explained.

Mike and Lynn Fabrick are hosting a silent auction next Saturday and Sunday, April 21 & 22 at Dry Canyon Collectibles in hopes to raise more money to provide an even better powwow on Canada Day, this year.

Anyone who is willing to donate to the silent auction can contact Mike or Lynn Fabrick at 403-856-3556.
