Grande Cache 40th Anniversary Fireworks Photos
* The fireworks was sponsored by Farnell Developments, Grande Cache Coal, AWN, Chamber of Commerce, and Death Race
Grande Cache, a town of 4000 people located 183km south of Grande Prairie along the Bighorn Highway 40, celebrates its 40th Birthday during Labour Day long weekend. The celebration lasts 4 days from Friday to Monday. As you can see, the number “4” is clearly prominent.

Sunday Miner’s Memorial (not attended)
Monday Farewell 50/50 Draw (not attended)
The Friday night kicked off with Opening Ceremony and fireworks. You may think I’m crazy, but I actually traveled from Grande Prairie on Friday night after work just to see this fireworks because I had faith (a) the weather was gonna be good despite raining the whole morning, (b) the fireworks display was gonna be awesome. Indeed!!! So happy :D :D :D It was a great turn-out. Lots of crowds. Truly a sensational stunning fireworks for a small town of this size. I took the following fireworks pictures at Miner’s Memorial Monument at Rocky the Ram Area. I think the location suits the town’s history since it’s a coal mine town. Afterwards, I stayed in Grande Cache Hotel for a night for Saturday events. The hotel room was pretty nice. :)
The town is planning to have 50th Anniversary in 10 years from today with the Time Capsule to be opened. Looking forwards to it. :)
