Thanksgiving at Heritage Park

This holiday long weekend, take the kids back in time at Heritage Park and enjoy free rides, a pancake breakfast and a traditional Thanksgiving meal.

As a thank you for a great summer, Heritage Park is offering free rides all weekend long ($10 value) and a free pancake breakfast for the first 500 guests through the gates each morning before 10:30 am.

And to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, the Wainwright Hotel will serve a three-course family lunch. The meal includes roast turkey with mashed potatoes, butternut squash soup and, for dessert, a slice of pumpkin pie with Chantilly cream. The meal will be served from October 6 until October 8, between 11 am to 3:30 pm. The meal is $22.95 for adults and $14.95 for children (under 12).

Good To Know: While Heritage Park is closing for the season, several attractions outside the park’s main entrance will remain open year-round. These include Gasoline Alley Museum, Selkirk Grille Restaurant, Railway Café and the five shops that make up the Haskayne Mercantile Block. Also, as of the beginning of November, the area will feature a free skating rink, open daily.

Select Historical Village venues will reopen for special and ticketed events during the off season, including Ghouls’ Night Out, Ghosts and Gourmet and Once Upon A Christmas, which is held on the five weekends prior to Christmas Day. However, the Historical Village won’t reopen for the 2013 summer season until the May long weekend.
