RJ here — I told you on Thursday that I was going to be in MacGregor Saturday for the fair, and what a trip it was. Truth be told, I figured I’d see some cool stuff, but I didn’t think I’d find a secret, hidden land.
…I mean, it’s probably not a secret to the locals, but I had no clue it was coming. More on that in a bit.
As per usual, I started by taking a photo of the welcome sign. (Photo #1!) Super stylish. As we headed down their business district, I had to stop to take photos of their soldier statue. I will always pay my respects regardless of which town I visit. Some people paid the ultimate sacrifice. (Photos #2-6!)
As we continued on, I found a nice little sitting area. (Photos #7-9!) I took a break, while the rest of my family walked around and enjoyed the sights. It was at this point my wife pointed out the mural next to the fire hall. (Photos #10 & 11!) I lived in Boissevain for a while, and I adored their murals. Anything that brings back those memories makes me smile. The fact it’s a fire prevention mural? Super cool.
As we headed on to the fair, I was preparing to take a bunch of photos for their Touch-A-Truck event. Instead, I spotted something from afar. Tennis courts? (Photo #12!) Cool! But wait… splash park entrance?
As I went into the trees and glanced around, I was shocked by what I saw. It almost looked like a hidden area for the kids. Slides, tunnels, bridges, climbing rocks, some play structures and of course, a splash pad! (Photos #13-19!) I walked around a bunch, and just revelled in it. The perfect place to take your family on a trip.
I admit, I did take some photos down the walking path, but I think I’m going to save those for another post down the line. There are some beautiful walking paths in this province, and I’d love to highlight those another time.
Oh, and a mini-library with some park benches? (Photo #20!) Brilliant.
MacGregor, you really have a lot to offer and I am so happy I took in the fair. Anyone who wants a nice town to take in, should consider it. Lots of beautiful houses and gardens as well. I highly recommend it.
