The Canadian country music star and the City of Grande Prairie are kicking up Municipal Government Day festivities a notch with a free concert in Muskoseepi Park!

Municipal Government Day is one of the Fabulous Five events the City is presenting in 2017 to mark Canada’s sesquicentennial. See http://bit.ly/2kjizyk for more details.

“We’re thrilled to to add to an already popular annual event with this fabulous performer,” says Kevin O’Toole, Chair of the Municipal Government Day Committee. “Having a chart-topping, award-winning musician take to the Amphitheatre stage is an awesome way to lead into the Canada Day weekend. Come on down, make the Park your Stompin’ Ground and celebrate your community and country.”

Municipal Government Day begins at 4 p.m. Hicks is joined by Dan Davidson and the Range Road Ramblers. Music runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The barbecue goes to 6:30 p.m.

This free family event also features bouncy castles, face painting and a mini train. City equipment as well as exhibits by municipal departments and community organizations will be on display. Check out cityofgp.com/mgd for more info.
