The town of Cabri came together over the weekend for Cabri Daze, which took place in the rural community for the first time in five years. 

The three-day event kicked off on Friday at the ball diamonds where the Cabri River Rats faced off against the Hazlet Elks. 

Also starting off the event-filled weekend on Friday evening was the Tween Dance, which was a brand-new event introduced for this year's Cabri Daze. 

Cheyenne Bradford, Community Development Director, said that despite the overwhelming heat, the weekend was a tremendous success. 

“Friends and family gathered from near and far to visit and celebrate the weekend,” she explained. “It was a great feeling to see everyone together and having fun, especially after our last two years.” 

Events continued all throughout the weekend, including a parade, activities in the park, a show and shine, a market, supper in the rink, and a performance from Men Without Shame. 

Bradford added that it was an honour to be able to hold the event in the community. 

“It shows unity and how when people come together, we can pull off something quite extraordinary,” she elaborated. “We love our community and all the individuals and businesses it entails. This event could not have happened without our local sponsors, we are so grateful for them, no matter the event, they are always willing to donate time or money to ensure our community thrives.”
