One of the premier events of the year for the Slave Lake & District Chamber of Commerce is the spring trade show. Re-branded this year with an ‘outdoor adventure’ theme, the trade show took place on May 4 and 5 at the Slave Lake Multi Rec Centre. The photos here, plus more, can also been seen online at lakesideleader.com.
Chamber of Commerce president Frankie Giroux says,
“The Outdoor Adventure Trade Show and Sale was a great success. We sold out on booth spaces, and had just over 1,000 people through the door over the course of the two days. There was great feedback from the public on the variety of vendors and services available and we look forward to another successful event next year.”
