It's an event you'll be talking about until the cows come home.
The 41st annual Ste. Rose Hoof n' Holler Days weekend is taking place in the Cattle Capital of Manitoba.
"It had started out historically as a time of harvest when people are bringing cows home, and a time to wrap up the season, so now it's just kind of our family gathering weekend", explained Ashley Vandepoele, Vice President of the Hoof n' Holler Committee.
Unfortunately, due to the recent inclement weather, there have been some changes to the schedule for this year's celebration. The mudbog has been cancelled and Boo in Molgat Park has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 26th. In place of those events, some new ones have been added. There will be a kids Halloween dance party at the Ste. Rose Community Center tonight (Friday) from 6 pm to 8. Then on Saturday you can take the little ones to see Seanster and the Monsters at 3, and follow it up with the Game Show for Kids at the Ste. Rose Curling Rink starting at 4:30.
As well, floats and vehicles for the parade on Saturday will now gather at the Ste. Rose Community Center, and the Coin in the Straw event takes place at the Ste. Rose Skating Rink on Sunday at 3. Something new you'll be able to take in during Hoof n' Holler this year is the Diamond Disc Dog show on Sunday with showtimes at noon and 2.
With a handful of new activities combined with events that have been welcomed back from the past, there's something for everyone in Ste. Rose this weekend.
"It's a ton of fun, most of the events are free of cost, so it's really a great time to get together with family, check out some fun stuff, the parade... there's a free movie night - there's all kinds of good things happening", said Vandepoele.
She also would like to give a huge thank you to the Ste. Rose Kinsmen Club who are an integral part of the weekend, as well as all of their sponsors and the wonderful support from the community.
