Slave Lake’s summer festival happened at an odd time this year, thanks to pandemic cosiderations, but when it finally happened, it was a great success. We managed to capture scenes from a few of the many events that happened Aug. 26 through 29. Some may not even have been official All-In events, but they were part of the big picture!
Vanessa (left) and ‘Ale’ started Vanessa and Ale’s Kitchen to sell Mexican baking at All In Slave Lake. They were one of several stalls at the All Season Market.
Dressed for adventure as Spiderman, Sebastian Medina, tries out the tightrope at the kids’ fair at All-In. The theme was ‘The Circus.’ His dad George Abadilla gives him a hand.
There were at least two blocks of vintage cars and lots of spectators at the All In car show on Saturday, Aug. 28.
Around 75 to 100 kids and one senior participated in the annual Kid’s Parade. The addition of Joey Sinclair made it a ‘Young at Heart’ parade. This year the Lesser Slave Lake Regional Arts Council took up the reins to provide decoration supplies.
The Richard Woodman band entertains at the All-In Block Party in downtown Slave Lake on Aug. 27. Left to right are Blaine Gullion, Tanner Mouallem, Phil Willier, Woodman and Will O’Donnell. Thanks to the Royal Canadian Legion for allowing access to their roof!
Flyin’ Bob was a surprise hit at the Block Party, with his goofy tricks and sly humour.

Something new, and very well-received, at the Block Party was street performers, presented by Stage North. Lyne Gosselin is pictured doing her ’silks’ routine.
Clockwise starting at the front: Ray Montgomery, Ryan Minchau, Jake Braun, and Walter Dyck cook pancakes and sausages at the All In pancake breakfast. Slave Lake Alliance Church always does the Riverboat Daze pancake breakfast. This year, the only difference was the name of the event. The men did most of the cooking, and the women did everything else. Around 500 people ate the free breakfast.
Doing the puck-drop honours at the Ice Breaker hockey game was Emma Read, between Shawn Gramlich (left) and former NHLer Tim Hunter.
