Dragon Boats and Sidewalk Sale

This coming weekend, of August 14th, will be a busy one for Banff.  Lake Minnewanka will be playing host to the 2010 Dragon Boat races and Banff Ave. is sure to be packed with avid shoppers maneuvering through the town-wide sidewalk sale.

Both Saturday and Sunday, races will be held on Lake Minnewanka between 9am and 3pm.  Teams of 22 from across Alberta and British Columbia will come together to compete for a chance to race at the 2011 Club Crew World Championship Race, to be held in Welland, ON.  Spectators are more than welcome to attend!  The 'Dragon Express', a free public shuttle, will run between Banff and Lake Minnewanka between 8am and 4:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.  All those wishing to attend this fun day are encouraged to ride the Dragon Express as parking is extremely limited at the Lake.  Pickup and drop off locations will be at the Brewster Bus Depot, the Mount Royal Hotel, Banff Ave./Fox St. transit zone and the Two-Jack Overflow Camping Lot.  Don't forget to check out the lion and dragon dancing, after the races, from 3-5pm at Banff Ave. Square (right next to The Bear and the Butterfly).

For those looking for another sort of 'fun' in the Park, Banff's weekend sidewalk sale may be just the ticket.  There are sure to be more than a few good deals, and with not a drop of rain in the forecast, shoppers will be free to linger and browse at a leisurely pace.

This weekend has a little something for everyone!
