Trapper’s Ball tickets now available at Cornerstone
The Canmore Winter Carnival kicks off this week with a long list of events and activities all meant to shake off those mid-winter blues.

The Trapper’s Ball is set for Feb. 5 at Cornerstone Theatre, featuring beard-growing and log-sawing competitions, and the perennial favourites, a re-enactment of The Shooting of Dan McGrew and a re-telling of The Cremation of Sam McGee.
