Western Days returned to Sandy Lake last weekend and it was very well attended.

Charlene Lewandoski, a member of the Western Days Committee, says that it was probably the biggest Western Days they've had in 26 years.

"[There were] definitely more [people] than in 2019. I would say that there [were] well over 2,000 people in attendance," she adds.

Lewandoski says that the pancake breakfasts and beer gardens were packed as well. 

"They served over 700 people for breakfast...  at lunchtime, they served over 750 people borscht and bread... [the beer gardens were full] and come supper time, we couldn't find a spot to sit," she adds. 

She then went on to say that the fireworks show was a big hit with everyone.

"A lot of people showed up and then we [did] them over the lake, so there [were] a lot of boats on the lake as well," she adds.

According to Lewandoski, there will be another Western Days next year.
