Located off Highway 28 east of Ashmont, is Mallaig, a quaint hamlet within the County of St. Paul. It is the home of the remarkable Haying in the 30's event. This year marks the 20th Anniversary on August 4 & 5. You’re invited to come and experience reliving the past as it was in the old days. While LOTS goes on during these 2 days, this event has one goal – to help cancer victims undergoing treatment with financial assistance for costs of transportation and lodging. All expenses for this 2 day event are funded by sponsors and volunteers, and 100% of donations are given to cancer victims. To see a detailed schedule of events and to learn more visit www.hayinginthe30s.com. Be sure to visit the Mallaig Museum to explore the history of the community. Enjoy camping at Mallaig Beach on Vincent Lake just south of Mallaig, or the staging area along the Iron Horse Trail which is open year round. Check in with the local ag society for other events held during the year. 54 www.GoEastofEdmonton.com

MAJOR ATTRACTION

Wander through the gallery and let modern technology offer you a glimpse of the dreams of Louis, the voyageur. Listen as William Tomison, the Chief Factor of Buckingham House, reflects and writes in his journal. Step into the world of the Indigenous people whose lives were so affected by the arrival of the fur traders. Complete your visit with a stroll down the interpretive path to the archaeological site of the two forts. The view will take your breath away.
