Independence Day event planned at Bowling Park

An Independence Day celebration with contests and fireworks is being planned at Bowling Park in Edmonton on Friday, July 1, 2022.

There'll be a three-legged sack race, corn hole and inflatables, and live music by the Hornet Nest Pickers plus much more.
The Park on the Glasgow Road just outside of Edmonton was conceived and built in 1972 by a treasured friend to the community, Father George Bowling, who said:
"A long time after I'm gone, the swings will still be swinging, the children will be playing, people who don't have homes can come by and have a place to stay and food will be given out."
His vision came to pass.
