ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS

D

Bellis is located just west of Vilna along Highway 28. Stop in and check out the huge antique selection at Heritage Corner Shoppe (see ad page 16). The Bellis area is excellent for blueberry and bog cranberry picking. Just 2 km south of the Bellis turn-off is Bellis Beach Lake, a quaint little lake with good perch and rainbow trout fishing. Travel through Bellis to Kaduk Lake, another wonderful spot for camping and fishing. From Bellis, travel south on Highway 857 and visit the historic Dickie Bush Church on the hill overlooking an immense fertile valley. Take Range Road 584 east up the slight rise, and then down, down, down into the seemingly bottomless Kubasa Canyon.

A simple walk down Main Street is akin to a history lesson come to life. A mainstreet restoration YOU KNOW project has revitalized many downtown ID heritage storefronts and buildings. Start your stroll by checking out Alberta's oldest operating pool hall and barbershop. This provincially designated and registered historic building was constructed in the 1920s and the inside still has many of its original features including furniture, advertisements, and oiled wood floors. Bring your camera when you visit Vilna's Mushroom Park, site of the World's Largest Mushrooms. Vilna's annual Boomtown Days Fair in August features a parade, games, and activities for all ages. Don’t miss the Christmas Craft Fair in November - bring the kids and have some fun with Santa and cookie decorating!
