It's been long anticipated, but the 2017 Spring Expo is finally here.

There's tons of different entertainment for kids and adults all weekend.

"We'll have Rapunzel and Flynn from the movie Tangled there on Friday from 4:00 until 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 1:00 till 2:00 p.m. to do photos with the kids. We also have a few local musicians like Abby Fooks and a duo called Barefoot and Brave, plus we have some guest speakers and demonstrations as well," explained Marley Henneigh, Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce Service Coordinator

"We will have a special dinosaur guest for photos on Friday and Saturday. Times vary because they need to take breaks, but they will be walking around the venue so look out for Dinosaur Tales."

The 2017 Spring Expo will have about 58 or 59 different exhibitors.

"Lots of different stuff like hot tubs, jewelry, clothing, security systems and all kinds of stuff. We will have Dino Donuts out front on Friday and Saturday and there will be a charity barbecue on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.," Henneigh outlined.

The admission for the expo has decreased this year.

"Kids 12 and under are always free, but everyone else is just $3 dollars. If anyone wants to come back we have wrist bands you can get for re-entry, so that admission fee covers you for the whole weekend," she noted. "I just hope everyone comes to check it out. We've worked really hard on it and we think it's going to be a lot of fun."

The 2017 Spring Expo runs 3:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. on Friday, 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Sunday.
