Fort Steele’s Wild West Wednesday a wild ridePosted: August 20, 2012

There is still time to take in Fort Steele Wild West Wednesday for the 2012 summer season.

A baked bean-blend of wild west ways and wackiness follows you as you dine at the International Hotel and then take a ride on Engine 1077.

A troupe of period actors perform while you dine on a barbecue beef and bean feast, setting the stage for antics at the train station and aboard the old steam engine – complete with a train robbery.

The crew, including Lisa Aasebo, Craig McCue, Tristan Gilmour, Cameron Lomon, Amanda Weatherall and Ashley Taylor-Lamb present a story featuring an unsavory crew of Americans boarding a train to Vancouver at Fort Steele, while a pursuing Pinkerton Agency detective, accompanied by Cst. Fernie, is hot on their heels. Their humorous and lively show is performed among the guests in the hotel, at the train station and aboard the train.

Please click on images to enlarge and begin self-directed slide show.

Fort Steele Heritage Town has conducted Wild West Wednesdays every second week dating back to July 4 and the final event of the season is August 29, beginning at 6 p.m.

Dessert and refreshments are served aboard the train.

Seating is limited so book early. Call 250-417-6000 for more info and to book.
