Good luck to this year’s contestants and to all rodeo fans and sponsors, welcome to Ponoka!

If you’re looking for a way to cool the kids off between the rodeo performance and chucks on a hot day, the Ponoka Kinette Club’s new playground and splash park at the Ponoka Centennial Park is a great idea.

Thanks to the Kinettes for organizing the volunteers who built the new playground during some tough conditions and to our crews who got the DURABASE mats down so all the construction equipment could access the site. The grass is in great shape and ready for visitors.

Wishing everyone a safe and fun rodeo week.
