May Long Weekend Ukrainian Dance Extravaganza



Take ridne!  From Kosiw, Ivano-Frankivsk,
Western Ukraine, from Iryna. 
What to do this May long weekend? Albertans have a great venue and a great idea!  Time to get to the Ukrainian Village!

Alberta's Ukrainian dancing fans, as well as those from across the Canadian prairies have a great May long weeend event happening!  It is time for The Celebration of Dance!

On Monday, May 20, 2013, Alberta's largest dance extravaganza will feature a variety of dance groups of all ages!  Gotta get there! The Ukrainian Village will be the host venue for a great day of authentic sights and celebrations of Ukrainian heritage, family fun and activities including a village market, musicians, entertainers, and more!  The rural life of Ukrainian settlers as they became players in Alberta's formative years will make for an entertaining and worthwhile step into history!  With wagon rides, sheep shearing demonstrations, religious services in the authentic Albertan built Ukrainian churches, informative exhibits, and of course, traditional Ukrainian foods, this is a weekend for everyone!

This is also a worthwhile family trip for those currently writing Alberta's academic achievement tests, in elementary school!  With a focus on the lives of Albertans, and her history,  this heritage museum is the best! 

Bring your picnic gear, your walking shoes, and a bag for your market shopping, that is, if you have time between all the dance extravaganza fun! Don't forget to bring your camera - the heritage museum is staffed by actors who portray the various roles involved in this cultural heritage museum - lots of stories to tell!  The Village is open from 10 to 5 this Monday!
