Weather Great For Western Days

Continued from page 1

The Fire Department also hosted a pie eating con-

test, which was new to the festival this year and held in
place of the previous perogy eating contest. This was a
lot of fun for the spectators and participants, said Le-
wandoski. With a few pies leftover, they were even able
to auction off the remaining pies, some selling for over
$50 each!
Another event that was keeping the crowd busy was
the Show and Shine car show at the Rec Centre grounds.
There were nearly 90 entries, and the show featured
some beautiful classic vehicles. The same people who
put on the car show also put on the Car Stall raffle, in
which people could buy tickets to guess how long an
old, beat up Jeep would run for once it was revved up.
Photos by Darryl Holyk The catch all fluids had been removed from its engine!
The Jeep was generously donated by Wesman Salvage
of Brandon and ran for two minutes and eight seconds
before stalling out. This attraction generated a lot of
enthusiasm and excitement from Western Days specta-
On Sunday, the final day of the busy western Days
weekend, there was a splash park for the kids, which
was well attended, and according to Lewandoski, the
kids had a riot.
Like any event, Sandy Lakes annual Western Days
weekend would not be possible without volunteers,
sponsors and those who come out to attend the many
events. We really appreciate all the volunteer help that
we got this year, it was terrific, concluded Lewandoski.
This is the major community activity in Sandy Lake, and
without the help of the volunteers and the Fire Depart-
ment, it would not be the success that it is.
