The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre presents the history of one of Canada's deadliest rock slides. In the early morning hours back in 1903, millions of tons of limestone crashed from the summit of Turtle Mountain and buried a portion of the community of Frank, a once-bustling coal mining town. Through state-of-the-art interactive displays and exhibits, along with winding trails through the rocks themselves, visitors can get an up-close look at the awesome power of nature.

Every year, the Ice on Whyte Festival grabs the Canadian winter by the snowballs and carves it into a wicked combo of ice and art. Just imagine – 70,307 kg (155,000 lb) of ice is dumped in preparation of this weeklong party – on purpose!
