Mark your calendar for July 23 & 24, 2016 – it’s the perfect time to get out of town and experience the Hometown Heroes Airshow Whitecourt. If your kids are anything like ours, there’s excitement in the air when they get to see an airplane up close – and the air show has always been one of those must-do summer activities for the kids.
The show welcomes you to come pay tribute to our heroes who have provided support in our Province this past year, provided emergency medical services, police and fire protection and all the Canadian Forces past and present. With lots to do for the entire family, it’s one of those convenient and affordable ways to get out of town, add a bit of excitement to a weekend camping trip and check out the many fun things to do in the Whitecourt area.

Though Whitecourt is close enough for a day trip, you might just want to make a weekend out of it, and check out the other attractions in town. If you’re spending the weekend camping, there are many options available: Carson Lake Provincial Campground (about 20km from town), Lion’s Campground (west end of town). If hotels are more your style, there are many options available.
