The Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce held its prehistoric-themed “Business Unearthed” 2019 Trade Show at the Ponoka arena April 12 and 13.
There were over 100 vendors and a market square for the trade show that was “200 million years in the making.”
Some of the community groups represented included the Town of Ponoka, the Chamber of Commerce, the Ponoka Youth Centre, and Ponoka and District Family and Community Support Services (FCSS).
Family-friendly activities included a performance by Got2Dance, reptiles and birds on display from Petland, and Dino the dinosaur from the Tyrell Dinosaur Museum in Drumheller.
Dino was seen throughout the day, and even joined in on a dance number during the dance studio’s performance.
There was also dinosaur races, where the children got to wear dino masks and tails, and race with a balloon between their knees.
