Return to High River For Fun & Food

Whether you first come to High River for an event, tournament or visit, there's no shortage of reasons to keep coming back. Traditions and fond memories form quickly around milkshakes on a hot summer day, picnics in the park, pie on the deck, appys & drinks on the sidewalk or a hot meal before heading out to the Santa Claus parade.

No trip around town needs to be the same when you use this starter list of things to do for inspiration.
