There are many legends surrounding the origin of these exciting races, but one seems to have surfaced as the most popular. Years ago, the only ‘home’ a range cowboy knew was a chuckwagon sitting still on the prairie. Each evening, the hard working cowboys would gather around their wagon for a hearty meal and swap stories near the campfire before bedding down under a blanket of stars. At week’s end, the cowboys would hurriedly pack up their chuckwagon and race each other to town –- the last driver, as legend has it, was obligated to buy the first round of drinks at the town saloon. After the Chuckwagon Races enjoy the evening Grandstand Show. This world class entertainment features The Young Canadians as well as headliner acts which are sure to excite and entertain. To close the evening’s entertainment, TransAlta lights up the night with a world class fireworks display. A perfect ending to an evening filled with thrills and excitement.
