Following the announcement that the 99th Dawson Creek Exhibition and Stampede would indeed take place this year, the Exhibition executive released plans for this year's event, which runs August 11 to 15, on Tuesday morning, July 13.

The World Professional Chuckwagons, Western Chuckwagons, and All Pro Chuckwagons will all be running, as will the Canadian Pro Rodeo Association's rodeo. There will be a junior and ranch rodeo this year as well, the first time in 18 years that the DC Exhibition and Stampede has had one. 

Unfortunately, one of the main attractions visitors look forward to each year, the rides and midway, will not take place. 

"This years event will look a bit different, however it will still be the 'Greatest Show in the Peace!'" read the announcement. 

The exhibition will also feature the annual agricultural fair — including light horse, heavy horse, cattle and horticulture — as well as beer gardens and live music, a petting zoo, bouncy castles, food trucks, and more.

The Dawson Creek Rotary Club is hosting the annual parade Friday, August 13, starting at 10 a.m.
