The 5th annual Big West Arts Festival is set to take place on the front lawn of Sheridan College this weekend, as there will be everything from art and music, to a welding rodeo and artist quick draw. Sheridan College President Dr. Paul Young says that the event just keeps getting bigger and bigger every year.
One of the more unique aspects of the festival is the welding rodeo that will take place throughout the day Saturday. Carl Shiner is in charge of putting together the welding rodeo, and he points out that it's quite a spectacle to watch.
The two day festival is today and tomorrow, with music scheduled until 11 o'clock tonight and 6 pm Sunday night. A full listing of the events for the 5th annual Big West Arts Festival can be viewed here.
