St. Paul Region Visitor Centre adjacent to UFO Landing Pad, St. Paul Along Hwy 29 (50 Ave & 53 St), 780-645-6800 Open May Long Weekend to mid-September The County of St. Paul is located two hours northeast of Edmonton and has a diversified economy with tourism, agriculture, and oil and gas activity. The main trade centres are the towns of St. Paul and Elk Point.

ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS The world's first UFO landing pad can be found in St. Paul. It was built as a 1967 Canadian Centennial project. Adjoining the pad is the Visitor Information Centre. History enthusiasts will enjoy touring Musée St. Paul, a museum which showcases the town's origins as a Métis colony, the arrival of the

homesteaders and the agricultural history of the area. Explore the historic Destrubé House – a building that was owned by some of the earliest settlers northeast of St. Paul. It definitely makes an interesting attraction as part of the museum. Come to the Open House on June 10. (See ad page 54). One of Canada's best and biggest little music Festivals returns to St. Paul in 2018 - This time...with more music, more dancing, more food...more FUN! Centerfield Music Festival presented by MCSNet kicks off summer with some of music's brightest stars in country and rock & roll June 15 & 16. Two days, ten bands?? Batter-Up! All happening at the historic Jaycee Ballpark. Stop in at Saddle Lake, located west of St. Paul, to see the Cree Indian metal sculpture and the Saddle Lake Museum. Enjoy the Pow Wow in late June annually. In early July enjoy the Stoney Lake Stampede, located southeast of St. Paul. Just north of town, the Boscombe Country Corral hosts the annual Hillbilly Jam on July 13-15. The very popular Haying in the 30s takes place in Mallaig early August. A week later and just down the road take in Ashmont Heritage Days. St. Paul's signature event is the Lakeland Rodeo Association Finals held on the September long weekend, with a full week of festivities leading up to this event.

OUTDOORS An abundance of lakes, tourist attractions, camping facilities and golf courses await visitors in the county region. Enjoy an 18hole round of golf at the St. Paul Golf Course with a fully stocked pro-shop and full service Tin Cup Restaurant.
